Staff Pick: The Spikedrivers at Goodale Park

From the August 2, 2012 edition

If I’m going to listen to music outside on a hot summer afternoon, I want it to sound like The Spikedrivers. The band’s brand of cool country is high energy but relaxing enough to sit and watch. It doesn’t take itself too seriously. A free performance by The Spikedrivers is just what my first lazy August Sunday calls for. Adding to the party are local food carts organized by Food Fort Columbus, activities for kids by Columbus Artmobile, and comics for sale by Nix Comics and Yuri: Gypsy Hunter. Pack a blanket to sprawl out on; you’ll want to stay a while.
