Seems like practically every day’s a busy one at the Falcon in Marlboro – especially now that the music club has opened a second Underground listening room. Check out the schedule at www.liveatthefalcon.com anytime you’re looking for an excuse to go out and have some fun, and you’ll see what I mean. But this coming Saturday, May 27, is special: the Falcon’s first-ever all-day festival, with an art show in the Gallery featuring Sydney Cash, food vendors, a New York Craft Beer Garden, street performers and live music on three stages.
Springfest gets underway with the Gallery opening at noon, followed by a multimedia kids’ show with Gustafer Yellowgold on the Main Stage at 1 p.m. Also on the Main Stage, you can catch the Dylan Doyle Band at 4 p.m., Lipbone Redding at 6 p.m. and Black Masala at 7 p.m. Music begins at the Falcon Underground at 2 p.m. with Leah Anne Seigel and Miles Jakob. Fred Zepplin comes on at 4 p.m., followed by Jacob and David Bernz at 5 p.m., Perry Robinson at 6 p.m. and Gato Loco at 8 p.m. At the outdoor Beer Garden stage, Slide Attack will perform at 1 p.m., Dante Defelice at 2 p.m., Nalani & Sarina at 3 p.m. and the Full Circle Fire fire dancers at 8 p.m.
How does one decide among so many interesting choices? Maybe just wandering from stage to stage is the way to go. In any case, entry is free (though donations to support the performers will of course be strongly encouraged). It’s a fabulous way to get a taste of the many genres that this great venue offers week after week, with an up-close view of Marlboro Falls thrown in. Who needs to get invited to a Memorial Day weekend picnic, with this going on?
