It’s ComFest weekend, Columbus! (How did we get here already?) And that means you’re either planning your weekend around the Goodale Park festival, or avoiding it like the plague. Good news either way, as there’s plenty to do this weekend whatever your preferences. As always, here’s what I’d do if I could be everywhere all the time.
Pro-tip: ComFest is best enjoyed when you can actually maneuver the park’s grounds. Which means you should aim for Friday afternoon, anytime Saturday prior to, say, 4, and Sunday. Of the three, however, Friday’s where it’s at.
If you’re in the mood for music this weekend and absolutely must avoid ComFest, The Antlers’ show at A&R gets my vote. Any band named after a song from The Microphones will always get my vote.
Books and beer, my life’s loves. Stop by Seventh Son on Sunday for book/zine swaps, local author readings, zine-making and more. Some of the city’s best small press publishers will be on hand, too.
