What’s up, readers?  Gear up for another adventure-filled week full of live music, sunshine, and smiles.  No plans? No problem? The Jamwich has got you covered with our personal selection of some of our favorite concerts and other events happening throughout the region this week. Here’s what’s up.

Pack your bags and head on over to the Thornhill Dragstrip in Morning View, KY for the 4th Annual Birds of a Feather music and arts festival.  Get stoked for three full days of live music from top-notch bands like Rumpke Mountain Boys, Goose, Dizgo, Restless Leg String Band, The Aquaducks, Hot Brown Smackdown, The Quasi Kings, plus many more.  The good folks hosting the festival please ask that you try and leave Thornhill Dragstrip cleaner, and prettier than we find it.  Trash and recycling bags will be handed out to everyone upon arrival. Please use them!  Be sure to pack a bathing suit so that you can take a dip in Lake Thornhill to cool off in the afternoon.  Four-day general admission passes (Thursday-Sunday) are on sale for $65, if you purchase online in advance, or $75 at the gate.  Primitive camping and parking are included in this price, however, you may upgrade to car-camping for $20. Day passes are also available for those who can’t swing the whole weekend, or as a cheaper alternative to join in on the action.  To learn more and purchase tickets head on over to www.birdsofafeatherfest.com
