Which of the following do you find enjoyable?
- Local music.
- Saving money.
- Being charitable.
- All of the above.
If you chose E, “All of the above”, then the music festival, Poorcastle, this Saturday, July 6, is made just for you.
Poorcastle runs from 1:00 p.m.-11:00 p.m. and is not only affordable (only $5!) and family-friendly but it’s also for a good cause-– the proceeds from admission fees will be donated to Crescent Hill Radio, a non-profit community radio station whose studios are in the same neighborhood as Apocalypse Brew Works, where Poorcastle is being held..
“Our mission is to support and promote local and regional music,” said Crescent Hill Radio founder and director Kathy Weisbach, “which is why we’re proud to be a co-sponsor of Poorcastle. It also means a lot that Poorcastle, and all the bands and volunteers, are going to return the favor and help support the radio station.”
Some of the bands scheduled to perform are Kathleen Hoye, southern Indiana’s the Hart Strings, Phourist, Nashville’s Kristen Cothron and the Dark Side, the Nick Peay Band, Tall Squares, the Uncommon Houseflies, Plastic Bubble, HuH Robots and more.
Poorcastle is also BYOG (Bring Your Own Guitar). There will be a busking tent open to anyone who wants to play.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets, as well as water and soda (no glass containers or alcohol will be allowed). There will be craft beer for sale from Apocalypse Brew Works and food trucks Traveling Kitchen and Booty’s.
That’s right, all this for $5 (free before 4:00 p.m. and free all day for kids 12 and under).
