“Grass” is IN the Name!

You couldn’t afford the Jam Cruise. Originally you planned to go, but then that rockin’ blueberry bud crop came into town and -- wouldn’tcha know, you wound up short for port fees! No worries, little stoner. While Saturday’s Open Grass Music Festival is landlocked and thus forced to comply with the laws of the ol’ US of A, it’s still jam-packed full of enough music and all-around chillax times and good vibes to make you forget all about that trip on the S.S. Shwag. In addition to oodles of awesome bands (Suenalo Sound System, The Heavy Pets, Crazy Fingers, and lots more), you can also stretch out life’s stresses with a yoga session, engage the masses with some spoken word, and pound out your worries with a drum circle! There will also be fire dancers, painters, and a child’s art tent so that all of the little dudes and dudettes can explore their own aesthetic sides.

The best part? It’s on solid ground, so if you want to roam, you can. The Open Grass Music Festival takes over Byrant Park (the corner of Golfview and Lake Avenues, Lake Worth) from noon to 8 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets cost $20.88, buy ´em at www.opengrass.com.
