On Friday (Aug 1) make sure to stop into Babeville’s Ninth Wardfor the Infringement Festival Friday Night Hootenanny with the Observers, Nickel City String Band, Folkfaces, and Allysen Callery. Participate in a drum circle in Delaware Park withDrums Along Hoyt Lake on Saturday (Aug 2) or bring your own piñata over to the Piñata Party at The Foundry, which will feature live music from Bipolar Coaster, Eraserhead’s Baby, One Way Terror, Bighorn Sheep, Apex Down, Chloroform, and Digital Afterlife. Then finally, onSunday (Aug 3) the whole thing wraps up with the Closing Ceremonies and the Iffy Awards atNietzsche’s at 8pm, but not before a block party in the Holley Farms Parking lot in Allentown, featuring a slew of street performers and bands (2pm-7pm).
