The 111 Music Festival which is – and I swear to you I am not making this up – a Sunday afternoon thing where local bands cram into the back of a few city buses to try to perform and, if they are lucky, maybe even take home a couple of gift cards all while the passengers of the bus, well, let’s say tolerate it, returns this weekend for a remarkable 6th year.

Yes, my friend, while we got only one Desert Trip, we have had six 111 Music Festivals.
What a town!
Update: I have been informed that, as it turns out, this year they are not cramming the bands into buses and instead are having them perform at bus stops because, ummm, you know, I really don’t understand why this thing does anything, tbh.
