Weekend Warrior, June 4 - 6

Weekend Warrior, June 4 - 6

We are in the midst of summer folks so get ready to work on your tans because it’s festival season. Yes, yes - we know. You can’t ignore that this Saturday will be The 3rd Annual Roots Picnic with the hometown heroes inviting local buddies DJ Jazzy Jeff and Pattern Is Movement as well as a few Pitchfork darlings like Vampire Weekend (headlining? - whose picnic is this?), Mayer Hawthorne and The Very Best. Raekwon, Ghostface and Method Man should be a more interesting performance than originally planned Reverend Run and DMC. We’re also diggin’ on 4AD’s Tune-Yards and Brooklyn’s Das Racist. But if you don’t have eighty bucks ($66 ticket + $14 rip-off charge), then you can join us economically-challenged music lovers at Best Fest (check out the feature interview below). Don’t forget your brown bag for your forty! Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing, Columbus Blvd. and Spring Garden St., 2pm, $80 w/charges, All Ages
