Above you'll find the countdown to Rocktoberfest, Alive's autumnal celebration of Columbus music. We'll be setting up shop at South Campus Gateway this Saturday, Oct. 2, from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. There you'll find a wide range of local acts playing for free on a brisk autumn day without a cloud in the sky. Plus you can pick up a free CD with all of the day's performers plus eight more awesome Columbus acts.

To get you hyped up for Saturday's, I'll be featuring the Rocktoberfest performers all week on the blog. Look out for the first couple posts this afternoon.
