My weekend will be spent in the bucolic Hocking Hills region at the Nelsonville Music Festival. Hopefully I’ll see you there (seriously, every year it’s basically like Columbus picks up and moves to Nelsonville for the weekend). As always, here’s what I’d do if I could be everywhere all the time.
This is potentially the greatest idea ever to happen to a comedian.
Though Friday’s stretch of Quilt into Kurt Vile into Dinosaur Jr. into The Men is about as strong a stretch as this fest’s put out, Saturday probably makes the most sense if you’re only looking to swing by for a day. Single-day tickets for Saturday are only $80 (weekend passes go for $30 more). You can’t find a closer, more relaxing music festival in these here parts.
It’s like the Tour de France, but somehow cooler. This fast-paced bike racing event takes place on closed city streets in the Franklinton neighborhood. Make sure to bring your bike to participate in the bike rally.
