HONK!FEST KICKOFF (Street Bands)

Event Date: 
Friday, October 5, 2012 - 7:30pm
The HONK! Festival is a revolutionary street spectacle of never-before-seen proportions that will converge for the seventh time in Davis Square, Somerville, MA, from Friday, October 5 through Monday, October 8, 2012!  Acoustic and mobile, borrowing repertoire and inspiration from a diverse set of folk music traditions – New Orleans second line brass bands, European Klezmer, Balkan and Romani music, Brazilian Afro Bloc and Frevo traditions, as well as the passion and spirit of Mardi Gras and Carnival– these “honkers” all share a commitment to several core principles. Metaphorically speaking, they honk their horns for the same reasons motorists honk theirs: to arouse fellow travelers, to warn of danger, to celebrate milestones, and to just plain have fun. Come to Johnny D's for the kickoff of this weekend you don't want to miss! http://honkfest.org/
