You know the drill. Empire Street gets closed off, bands play loud, there’s performance art and people with bicycles, there’s T-shirt vendors and bubbles and beer and food trucks (the Providence Juice Company’s maiden voyage!) and Megasus and Brown Bird and the What Cheer? Brigade and many many more, and did I mention the beer?! And there’s the awards for Jukebox creator, Brandon Edens, and contemporary artist, Shep Fairey. It’s always a bunch of fun. Get down there. (The Phoenix has a great cover story and oral history of AS220. It’s been a true force for good in the city.)
Great poster design this year by William Buzzell and Cara Collins (cropped here for format reason, hope that’s okay). Nice that old cassettes and 8-tracks are sort of having a second act with designers — flash drives, pocket books.
$5, Saturday, 1pm to 1am, Foo Fest 2010, Empire Street between Washington and Westminster.
