The old saying goes that everyone complains about the weather but no one ever does anything about it. Well, MidPoint is doing something about the crummy weather: They're having the music festival anyway.
Come down to Fountain Square at 5-7 p.m. for two performances by MPMF.09 acts: Shanya Zaid & the Catch from New York City (5:00), followed by The Young Republic from Nashville (6:15). Grab a beer and food and plot your MPMF itinerary for the rest of the evening.
Showcases at the other 22 MPMF venues start at 8:00 or 8:30. Find the up-to-the-minute accurate Thursday schedule here.
Check out CityBeat's MidPoint Central for details on MPMF cover charges, three-day wristbands, a map of all the venues, free shows, the Lite Brite Film Test, the conference panel and the Scion Streetcar Shuttle. Yes, those cool little cars will come in handy on a night like tonight.
