Sweet Fancy Moses!  Riverfest is almost upon us, and it’s time to get all logistical-like.  Lots of great bands, plenty of stages, and some decisions must be made.

The full Riverfest music schedule is available right cheer.  As a public service, CheckOneTwo has sifted through the schedule and humbly offers this handy guide as a resource for the discerning Riverfest attendee.  Click the hot links for more information about each of the bands.

NOTE:  the Arkansas Music Tent is a gold mine, and is located on the NLR side on the east end of the park. 

Highlights that I see:

FRIDAY

6:15 SILVERTON (Triple-S Alarm Stage)–upbeat, old-school folk/country

7:30 607 (Triple-S Alarm Stage)–smart rap

9:30 THE MOVING FRONT (Arkansas Music Tent)–guitar/keyboard-driven post-punk
