After an understandably busy 4th weekend I'm looking forward to some serious vegging this weekend. The blues may draw me out, however, since so much of will be going on right down the hill. Tacoma's Old Town Blue Festival (***terrible website alert***) kicks off this Saturday at noon with a solid line up of music in five different venues all within a block of one another. There's no info about parking but you can search among local neighborhoods for on-street parking as well as along nearby Ruston Way. Otherwise, you can bus it to the festival on the 13. Another highlight is that the whole thing is a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Resource Center.
Tickets/wristbands are $20 and are available at The Spar, the Parkway Tavern, and the Tully's in Old Town and Stadium areas. I'm told to grab them ahead of time if possible as they may sell out the day of.
So, drag yourself out to enjoy some soul-bending blues and leave Sunday for vegging.
