12th annual Blues on the Banks

When: Fri., Aug. 14, 7-11:30 p.m. and Sat., Aug. 15, 4-10 p.m. 2009

The two-day festival formerly known as Blues in the Park has a new home on the banks of Indian Creek in Caldwell, but features the same rocking selection of music including blues, rock and zydeco from a group out of Louisiana. The festival begins at Music of the Vine (2805 Blaine St., Ste. 130, Caldwell) and the Bent Fork Outdoor Stage with Dikki Du and the Zydeco Krewe, B-3 Side and Lori B and the Blue Diamonds. The Saturday portion of the festival shifts to the park on the shores of Indian Creek between Seventh and Kimball avenues. Several musicians perform throughout the day including the BoDo Brothers, Ken and Rico, Bottom Line Rhythm and Blues Band and Almost Dangerous with the headliner, Seattle's Too Slim and the Tail Draggers finishing off the night. Remember to bring lawn chairs and some form of shade. Coolers and outside alcohol are not permitted.

Price: Friday, Aug. 14, $10 general admission, $25 VIP; Saturday, Aug. 15, general $10, FREE for youth 12 and younger
