The 2nd Annual Bloktoberfest Oct. 16

The 2nd Annual Bloktoberfest Oct. 16

Even though it happened on a rain-soaked day, last year’s inaugural Bloktoberfest managed to be the perfect marriage of community spirit, delicious food from Philly’s best food trucks, all kinds of epic beer varieties, and a nice lineup of music that included Adam Arcuragi and The Love Language. But in honor of its second coming, one of the city’s larger block parties has outdone themselves. The beer lineup will feature favorites from Dock Street, Weyerbacher, and Ommegang, and the food truck lineup has become twice as large to feature the likes of Honest Tom’s Taco Truck, The Dapper Dog, and Koja. But this also marks the first time that the festival will be bringing in 2 stages of music, and it will features bands like London’s Allo Darlin’, the horn-tastic Budos Band, and a bunch of up-and-coming locals. Since a busy schedule that involved signing to Merge Records, releasing an ambitious sophomore LP titled Libraries, and embarking on national tours with Camera Obscura and Local Natives prevented The Love Language from playing another local show last year, the fest decided to take matters into their own hands and invite them back as a headliner. Joining them will be Cozy Galaxies (formerly The Major Leagues) whose Americana rock echoes the likes of Wilco and Pavement as well as Strange Engineers, Giant Mind, Fishtown Jazz Odyssey and New Pony. Blocktoberfest, 20th and Christian St., 12 - 8pm, Free, All Ages - Bill McThrill
