There's a lot going on this weekend. I'll be at the Krautner release show tonight, and Saturday I'll bounce from the Sonics to Jonathan Toubin's show, plus (self-promo alert!) I myself am playing gospel 45s while awesome brunch is served up over at UFO on Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Whew.


But that's me! You should totally go to this festival in Ypsi this weekend (starting this evening) — it sounds bonkers-fun!


Join us for 56 unsteady hours of free, all-ages, all-species fun in Ypsilanti April 24-26! Music, fashion, pancakes, puppetry, poetry, film, basketball, an inflatable pink elephant, a hot dog cart, hot dogs, history, and so much more!
