UPDATED 6/12/13 to correct spelling of Big Eyed Phish.
I'm happy to say the East End Festival is back with its old musical fervor. Sure, there's still a few cover bands for the timid, but for the most part it's all homegrown rock 'n' roll on four stages, baby. Just dig this: The Driftwood Sailors, Tryst, Big Eyed Phish, JJ Lang, Cherry Bomb, Download, Blackened Blues, Audio Influx, Subsoil, The Natalie B Band, Moon Zombies, Zac Brown Tribute Band, and food trucks... Food trucks! Not that this is the one and ONLY East End Fest this year, so don't miss your chance.
The 2013 East End Festival takes place Friday, June 14, 5-11 p.m. in Rochester's East End (East Avenue from Matthews to Gibbs). $5/13 and up; 12 and under free. eastendmusicfestival.com.
