The annual Black Raven Flock Party is this Saturday, May 4th, from noon til 8:00 at the brewery in Redmond. They take over the entire parking lot for this event. It’s really something to see. In case you’ve never been, this is one of the best beer events of the year. It is an anniversary party cleverly disguised as a beer festival.
There are a couple reasons to get there early. First, shorter lines for beer. Second, some of the best stuff will go quick. Third, my band plays first. I guess that’s three things. Not good at math. Check out the website for event details.
Not just beer and food, but great music too. My band, Four on the Floor, opens the show. We’ll hit the stage promptly at 12:45 and play your favorite classic rock hits for about an hour and a half, at which point they will drag us off the stage kicking and screaming. The other acts on the bill are Georgetown Orbits, C-Leb & the Kettle Black, and Dirty Pots.
