[FESTIVAL] + SAT., AUG. 12
There are so many summer music festivals, both in town and across the country, that it can be overwhelming. Are any of them even worth going to, or is it best to just lie on a cold tile floor? Spirit is doing a great job of trying to lure you out of the house with its second annual Summer Recess Food and Music Festival. Music will include such local talent as Amir Miles, Honey, Sluggs, Super Yamba Band, Lyndsey Smith & Soul Distribution, High Waisted, Swampwalk, Chantillion, The Hills and the Rivers, Outsideinside, The Van Allen Belt, Glowworms and Good Sport. Food includes vendors from nearby restaurants like Round Corner Cantina and Ki Ramen. This festival is open all day and costs zero dollars, so good luck coming up with a valid excuse not to go.
Noon-midnight. 242 51st St., Lawrenceville. 412-586-4441 or www.spirightpgh.com
