What are you doing for the Cinco?
There's lots of fun shit going on this Saturday in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. We've started a short list for you, which can be found in this week's 'Our Picks' section. Of all the specials and clever spins on this day of Mexican heritage celebration (Cinco de Micros at Broken Top Bottle Shop, Kinko De Mayo at Bachelor, etc), the Festival de Banderas and Cinco! party at Les Schwab Amphitheater seems to be the biggest thing going—and we've got two sets of two tickets to give away (that's four tickets, total)!
***Here's what you should do: like us on FB and share the post. We'll then put your name in our editor's Minnesota Vikings hat and pick two winners by day's end. Winners will be notified via Facebook.***
If you don't win the free tickets, you can buy them for $8 at bendticket.com or for $10 at the Ticket Mill in the Old Mill and at Amalia's Restaurant.
Want to know more? The Festival de Banderas (FDB) is a family-friendly thing from 10am-5pm and includes music, dance, food, and more. At 5pm the music starts up—and it's good!
Papo Medina y Expresion Latina, Diego Garcia, and Hacienda, the headliner (pictured above) are all solid bands They'll play from 5-10pm.
Garcia toured with Interpol, Morrissey, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Hacienda toured with the Black Keys and recorded at their studio. We've been listening to Hacienda a lot in here recently. This show is going to be dope!
Win ticket's! It's easy and free!
