A Bluegrass, BBQ & Craft Beer Festival Is Heading To The Greek Theatre
Grab your finest plaid shirt and head to the Greek for a pig roast, lawn games and plenty of banjo pickin'.This Saturday the annual music fest The LA Bluegrass Situation will convert The Greek Theater into a massive backyard BBQ, complete with twangy tunes and SoCal-twists on classic country eats. Indie folk favorites Dawes will be headlining the event and L.A.-based bands Wild Reeds and Dustbowl Revival will also be joining the line-up. In addition to tons of great food, beer from Lagunitas and games, there will also be guitar lessons, so you can finally refine your bluegrass-playing skills.
Food at the festival will include a promising "Pig-On-A-Spit" from Cassell's in Koreatown, Taiwanese BBQ from Mar Vista's Status Kuo and the esteemed Lobos Truck will be serving up ribs, BBQ chicken and, of course, tacos. There will also be BBQ pizza from Urban Pie and s'mores courtesy of San Diego's Mallow Mallow. In addition to beer, there will also be wine and cocktails.
The festival kicks off at 2 p.m. and features two stages for all of your cowboy boot-stompin'-bluegrass enjoyment. Some of the other bands making an appearance include Punch Brothers, Lone Bellow and Sam Outlaw.
Tickets can be bought online and range from $35 to $60—depending on how dusty you want to get your boots—and it looks like they're going fast.
