And once again, we bring you Friday Freebies, wherein we present things to do this weekend that won't cost you any more than the gas it takes to get to 'em.
In addition to the American Castrophe show with Adam Lee & the Dead Horse Sound Co. at Midwestern Musical Co., there's the usual First Fridays stuff going on down in the Crossroads. Check out the First Friday Hitlist for what's what.
In Lawrence tonight, Wonderfair: Art Gallery and How! will have the closing reception for "The Art of Pre Sense Form," by Jeffrey Isom. It runs 6-9pm, and there will be the release of five new limited-edition, screen-printed works on paper by Isom. F-14 Press will have their screenpress set up to throw Isom's images on your shirt, hoodie, etc. I did it for the screen-printing party Asteroid Head did, and it was pretty keen.
The Louisburg Cider Mill's Ciderfest and Craft Fair has its second and final weekend tomorrow and Sunday. There will be live music noon-5pm both days from local bluegrass favorites Bluestem, as well as Cajun and old-timey music from Jamey Logan & Friends. That's in addition to pony & wagon rides, a moonwalk, the pumpkin patch, and assorted other family-friendly activities. As I can't get out there for a couple weeks more, could someone drive some cider doughnuts over my way?
Lastly, you can plop your ass in Lawrence's South Park for most of the weekend for the Octoginta bike race. More information is available here. No maps, though. Sorry, kids.
