Mid-Town Square Spring Festival

We are excited to announce the 2nd Annual Mid-Town Square Spring Festival! Come kick off NC Beer Month with an afternoon of supporting local artists, vendors, and a variety of delicious food trucks, followed by a free concert featuring the Mountain Goats at 5pm!

From Peter Hughes of the Mountain Goats:

The theme this time around is goth, a subject closer to my heart perhaps than that of any Mountain Goats album previous. And while John writes the songs, as he always has, it feels more than ever like he’s speaking for all of us in the band, erstwhile goths (raises hand) or otherwise, for these are songs that approach an identity most often associated with youth from a perspective that is inescapably adult. Anyone old enough to have had the experience of finding oneself at sea in a cultural landscape that’s suddenly indecipherable will empathize with Pat Travers showing up to a Bauhaus show looking to jam, for example.

But underneath the outward humor, there is evident throughout a real tenderness toward, and solidarity with, our former fellow travelers—the friends whose bands never made it out of Fender’s Ballroom, the Gene Loves Jezebels of the world—the ones whose gothic paths were overtaken by the realities of life, or of its opposite. It’s something we talk about a lot, how fortunate and grateful we are to share this work, a career that’s become something more rewarding and fulfilling than I think any of us could have imagined. We all know how easily it could’ve gone the other way, and indeed for a long time did.

Food trucks in attendance include: Zeke's Meats, Chirba Chirba, Fetch Hot Dog Co., The Humble Pig, The Tot Spot, Buddhalicious, The 13th Taco, Fuzzy's Empanadas, The Cookie People, and Fresh Local Ice Cream!

There will be several timed special release beers at Spring Fest. Details about beer releases will be announced closer to the festival date.
