  • Blackbird Revue plays PorchFestKC on Saturday.

PorchFest isn't a new concept - it originated in Ithaca, New York, in 2007 - but it's novel here. The idea: You and a group of friends or your family park your car somewhere in the West Plaza neighborhood and amble around as musicians play from the porches of generous, music-loving residents.

More than 70 local and out-of-town artists are on the bill, and you've heard of quite a few of them. The lineup skews toward Americana and rustic folk, with local favorites Old Sound, Blackbird Revue, Maria the Mexican, Rural Grit Allstars and Good Time Charley, but be on the lookout for a few surprises, including San Francisco's Quinn DeVeaux (delivering smooth R&B) and Hawaii's Fayah (blending roots with reggae). Bring a lawn chair, a blanket and some sunscreen.
