Probably the best lineup we've seen is set for this Saturday at Ritter Park in Huntington. The Huntington Music and Arts Festival features a reunion of American Minor, Jeff Ellis, The Demon Beat, and a whole slew of other solid acts.
Ian Thornton, who books bands at Shamrock's Irish Pub out there, has put together quite the event, in this, the first of what we hope will be an annual thing out there. If you are so inclined, there's a HMAF after-party at Shamrock's that night, with Bud Carroll, Attack Flamingo and Sasha Colette.
Kudos are in order for Thornton; kudos indeed. Check out Dave Lavender's article on HMAF in the Herald-Dispatch, and this is something to definitely check out if you're into the rock and/or roll.
--- Update: Lavender talks in extended fashion and in more detail with Thornton and Carroll about the HMAF and the Huntington scene, past, present and future in Thursday's H-D
