Summer Arts Festival is This Weekend

Last week, we heard all about the Summer Arts Festival, but since it’s this weekend, we feel it bears repeating!

Where can you learn stage combat, do some artistic competition, listen to great music, and take in a show? You guessed it, the River Campus Summer Arts Festival. This year’s festival is no different with fun for the whole family and art enthusiasts alike. Rhonda Weller-Stilson runs down some of the activities available this weekend—all for free!

There is no time to waste when summer comes!  Everyone is throwing a party.  There are food festivals, beer festivals, ethnic festivals and outdoor art fairs.

This week on Left of the Dial, KRCU’s independent music program, we hear from Khruangbin, a Houston trio who are influenced by the sounds of ‘60’s-era Thai funk music. Plus new music from Neko Case, and Kamasi Washington composes a jazz tune about what the video game Street Fighter means to him.

The city of Jackson broke out the oversized scissors for two ribbon-cuttings today. A new pedestrian bridge to connect their walking trail and a new bandshell playground were both officially added to their city park.
