Bent on creating a sequel to the sold-out inaugural event in 2012, PACA returns to its youngish roots with a two-day festival of all things arts. Expect some high times.

On Aug. 22 and 23, Attack of the PACA will serve up a smorgasbord of music, theater, and visual arts as only it can – filling two stages at its 1505 State St. home with as much music, drama, poetry, monologues, and one-act comedies – not to mention a couple drag acts for good measure.

Theater lovers can dig in to plays by Christopher Durang, David Lindsay-Abaire, Eric Bogosian, Tennessee Williams, Shel Silverstein, and others. Music enthusiasts can catch Justin Moyer, If/Then, Jerry Gaff, and Jo Hyatt, to name a few. Local art will adorn the walls of the gallery and craft vendors will offer up their wares.

This event is a fundraiser for the Center, but according to organizer Jeff Rodland, it is also a chance to offer local artists the opportunity to express themselves, which is at the heart of their mission. 

There’s never a shortage of parties at PACA, and this event is a great way to help them celebrate two successful years and to see what may be in store for the next years to come. – Mary Birdsong

6:30 p.m. each night // Performing Arts Center and Theater, 1505 State St. // Tickets are $10 per person, per night, or a two-day pass for $15
