The long-running East End Fest has had its ups and downs as the area has seen businesses and bands come and go. And in fact, this year will be the last East End Festival as we know it — the organizers will replace it in the future with a smaller, free "City Celebration" event. I'm happy to say it'll go out on top with this year's particular lineup. There are still cover bands for those who need them, along with original bands you should watch for. Spread out on four stages in the area, check out Haewa, Noble Vibes, Sophistafunk, The Barry Brothers, and The Neil Van Dorn Band. It's gonna rock and beer will flood the streets.
East End Music Fest takes place Friday, June 12, in the East End neighborhood. Bands start at 6 p.m. Check out eastendmusicfestival.com for full lineup and times.
