29 bands and solo acts from Ann Arbor and beyond come together this weekend to raise funds for the New West Side Association and Ann Arbor Alliance (and just have a good time).

Sunday, September 4

Monday, September 5

  1. is “arbourfest” a typo or some faux-british po-mo hipster thing?

  2. It’s really more an inside poke-fun reference to the “European feel” folks and the “Annarbour” signs… you may have noticed Ypsi-ites often spell Annarbour in such a way when snickering at our Bohemian-Bourgeoise. All in good fun, though—I dig plenty of things about this town yet.

  3. For those who weren’t there, I pity the fools. Both events were smash hits, aided in no small part by many volunteers, the bands, and our favorite sustainable brewers.

    Next up, a candidate forum in October?

  4. Dang straight. Several-hundred (Dale, do we have a better estimate?) attendees on Monday donated over a thousand dollars to the cause, and only minor logistical/technical problems. Next-stop: a decent website and more photocopies?

    Next year: the Blind Pig(?!)
