Are there any decently well known concerts/festivals around where you live? I am not asking about things like Warped Tour, Bonnaroo, and the such, although living near those would be pretty nice sometimes.
We have a Crawfish Boil here in Birmingham Alabama. I go because of the free ticket, not the crawfish, they gross me out.
It invloves lots of crawfish and about 10-15 mostly well known bands or artists.
