The third City Pages West Bank Music Festival is this week! As in years past, Cedar Avenue will be packed with performances inside the bars in the West Bank neighborhood, and the street itself will host an outdoor stage of some of the area's most captivating live performers.

Leading the way are punk-infused rhymer Astronautalis (who just announced he'll be touring with Flobots), charismatic rapper MaLLy, blistering rock duo Bloodnstuff, and electropop team Wiping Out Thousands -- and there are many more. The show takes place all day after 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 18.

I disagree. The best way to spend a sunny Saturday will be in Somerset, Wisconsin at Knotfest.
