We love everything about music festivals. Oh, except for quick sell-outs, ridiculous pass prices, set conflicts, overhyped bands and overpriced booze (and the fact that, in 2011, there's still a Dave Matthews Band Caravan, though we won't hold that against the entire category.) With all of that taken into consideration, it seems we really are poised to love everything about Bushwick Walkabout, this weekend's mini music fest thrown by RethinkPopMusic and BirdDog Productions.
Check these details to have your faith restored: Bushwick Walkabout 2-day passes
cost an astounding $15, which gets you over a dozen local bands (including Arpline, Grandchildren, Magic Man, Fort Lean, and Little Gold) and free booze. You read that right; your Bushwick Walkabout pass gets you access to an open bar with free Reyka Vodka and free Staropramen Beer.
We dig you, Bushwick Walkabout, for reminding us how simple and spirited an indie music fest should be.
