Best Bets: Lake Avenue Live: 12 bands, two nights
Meanwhile, a block away from the marathon tents, is Lake Avenue Live featuring 12 bands on Friday and Saturday in the DeWitt Seitz parking lot.
This locally grown lineup includes the likes of Southwire, with its gospel-folk-freestyle-revival sound, GRRRL PRTY, which is billed as a “celebration of femininity and unsheathed swagger,” Glass Elevator, which channels its inner synth-poppian, that quirky free-to-be-you-and-me band Red Mountain, the faithful folkie Charlie Parr and drum-friendly The 4onthefloor.
GO SEE IT What: Lake Avenue Live
When: 8 p.m. Friday; 4 p.m. Saturday
