For the second year in a row, Corktown Strut will liven up the 4th of July weekend while giving artists and musicians a platform to get their work out there (and hopefully make some money). Last year, the summer festival helped local music venues to get 46 percent more business than they did on Strut-less 4th of July weekends. The six stages will feature great local bands like George Morris and the Gypsy Chorus, the much beloved super kickass Prude Boys, the also beloved and kickass Kickstand Band, and many more. Venues include favorites like the UFO Factory, PJ’s Lager House, and specially transformed spaces including Dean Savage Park. Attendees will be able to grab a bite at a number of awesome restaurants that are participating, making for a pretty rad festival.
