Did you miss Midpoint?Â Well, there’s another opportunity this weekend to check out some great local bands in one central location.
The Clifton Heights Music Festival takes place this Friday, and showcases 25+ bands at four venues.Â Similar to Midpoint, the Clifton Heights Music Festival takes four bars not normally used as music venues and packs them with great local musicians likeÂ Chick Pimp, Coke Dealer at a Bar, Daughters and Sons, The Frankl Project, Wonky Tonk, and Eclipse.Â $5 gets you an all-access wristband.
The festival might be right on the heels of Midpoint, but to me it seems like perfect timing.Â Since many of the bands just played MPMF, it’s a great deal for people who focused more on the national acts over the weekend and might have missed the local acts.Â Plus, since it’s sponsored by the Clifton Bar Association, cheap beer shall abound.
As a Clifton resident (Cliftonite? Clift Hanger?), I’m glad to see the area trying to do something cool.Â Â Clifton sometimes gets a bad reputation for having too much crime, or dismissed as a victim of suburban sprawl.Â Still,Â I’d take Murphy’s over Cadillac Ranch any night, and between Rohs Street Cafe and Baba Budan’s, I can catch a local show most nights of the week.Â Hopefully the festival will bring some attention to an underrated part of town.
