    Music Lovers: Crawl Over to Tucson’s Biggest Music Fest

    As anyone who’s seen the highlighter-hued posters papering downtown and Fourth Avenue can tell you, this weekend is the annual Tucson Weekly Club Crawl. If you can’t see decipher the posters’ neon, 80s-style font, the event is touted as “”Tucson’s Live/Local Downtown Music Festival.””

    The 21+ event features 25 stages of live music from local bands as well as acts from as far away as New York and Miami. Covering over eight blocks of Fourth Avenue and downtown, the event begins at 7 p.m. on Saturday.

    Over 40 acts will be performing from a wide selection of genres, including rock, folk, hip-hop, and an entire stage devoted to Latin music. Some notable acts include Phoenix-based indie band What Laura Says, as well as local favorites Mostly Bears, R. Cougar and Blind Devine.

    A few picks to check out include the hip-hop artists on stage at Sports on Congress and something they’re calling “”Church of Roc Revelations”” at Vaudeville.

    The most eclectic iPod shuffle is hitting the streets of downtown for this ear-blasting extravaganza. Every venue — from the Chocolate Iguana to the Rialto Theatre — has acts booked to tempt the techno-hipster, the head-banger, the rocker, the international folk buff and the alt/indie punk-pop-tart music lover in you.

    More information on the event can be found at Clubcrawl.ning.com. Music fans can pick up a wristband to attend the event at Zia Records for $8 before the event or for $10 at the door.
