Gallabaloo’s Third Installment Sounds Tasty by Ryan Smith

Saturday, Aug. 13

For a one-day local festival that’s just getting going, Gallabaloo’s got a whole lot of damn good stuff going on.

In its third year, the now-annual get-down is a celebration of modern roots music, pulling together a crafty, heady concoction of alt/indie country, punk-rock, psychobilly, bluegrass, and good ’ol rock and roll.

This year’s lineup features a grand marshal of the new-roots movement, the beyond-hard-driven Joe Buck Yourself, along with other singularly talented – and really good-timey – national, regional, and local acts: Ron Yarosz & The Vehicle, Matty B & The Dirty Pickles, Rodger Montgomery Blues Band, Diggin Roots Band, Bootleggers Bible Club, Sean Patrick and the Newgrass Revolution, The Coffin Bangers, Matt ‘Broke’ Boland, Jess Royer & Nick Warren, Joe Nameles, Lunch Munny, and The Remnants.

Located within a mile of Lake Erie’s waters at Jim N I Music Park, Gallabaloo is its own kind of festival. In a sea of summertime live music events, that’s refreshing.

Plus, there’s the one-of-a-kind State Line Whisker Rebellion beard and mustache competition, along with cool local vendors like The Bearded Woodsman and Pin Up Erie, and fire dancers, to name a few.

It’s pretty laid back, family friendly, and close by.

Plus barbeque. Really bangin’ barbeque.

Gallabaloo: sounds good. – Ryan Smith
