The perennial free street party Moonfest will feature eight bands including Astari Night, Leading the Heroes, Nothing Rhymes with Orange, Mission Veo, and Surfer Blood, the last of which if you havent been following South Florida music seems positioned as our next rock heroes, receiving favorable reviews from Spin and Pitchfork among others. Other entertainment will feature street performers, a haunted house, circus acts, rides, games, and an adult costume contest for cash and prizes. The party starts at 4 p.m. and will be held from the 500 block of Clematis Street to the end of Clematis in Downtown West Palm. VIP tickets for the private R.I.P. tent cost $35 and include free food and drinks. Moonfest afterparties will be held at Osheas Irish Pub (531 Clematis Street) and Respectable Street (518 Clematis Street). Visit moonfest.org.
