Views of the Neighborhood – Port A Music Fest

Port Aransas Music Fest was held this weekend. Since most of the performances were after my bedtime, I thought you would enjoy meeting the artists virtually and seeing the places where the artists performed. Well, that’s the hope anyway.

  4. On, my, that’s a lot of artists. Was/is a weekend-long festival? I’m like you. So many festivities don’t get started until I’m ready for bed 😉 I think back to my teenage years and how the bands my friends and I would go to listen and dance to didn’t even start playing until 10 pm. Lol. Those days are long gone for me.

    1. It was Friday and Saturday. I agree about the bedtime starts. Thanks, Marie.

  5. I laughed when I saw Michael Milligan and Texiana Bluez are playing the Driskill Hotel next weekend — both ends of the venue spectrum, for sure. I wish they’d come to Houston sometime; they’re one of my favorites. They’ll be back at Giggity’s October 27 — might be a good time for a roadie.

  8. Good morning, John,
    It looks like I really need to bring my bicycle again the next time in Port A. and ride around. I don’t recall having seen any of these places so far. I really need to explore Port A. more.
    Have a wonderful day,
    Pit

  10. Hi John, thanks for this fun walk around the neighborhood. It had to have been a terrific music fest. I love the names — artists and venues. “Splendiferous” is my favorite name, and “Giggity’s” is a close second. Cinnamon Shores is right up there too. Such fun. Hugs on the wing.

  12. John, I can’t fault you for hitting the sack before the festivities started — I’d have probably done the same thing! Sounds like an interesting line-up of talent though (and I like seeing how Port A is coming back from the hurricane!!)

  18. I’m still catching up after a busy weekend John, I’m afraid I missed the music. I kinda wish I could have dropped in to hear ” Tumble Dry Low” I think it’s a clever name. Maybe they know where the socks went.

  19. John,

    Love the happening vibe and the array of artists that paint your town! And of course I was attracted to Shorty’s most of all, because it looks ‘divey’ and I loves me a good dive bar with live music very much.

    Love your virtual tour! 🙂
