Hogan’s Hideaway is hosting the first annual Three Heads Brewing Music Festival during the Park Ave. Fest on August 6th and 7th. There will be five beers on tap, two from TJ Sheehans and all three of Three Heads IPA’s. This is a free event and I can’t think of better way enjoy one of Rochester’s best Summer Festivals. There will be a tent for some relief from the sun and bathroom facilities. You can also check out Hogan’s Hideways new remodeled bar. Hogan’s Hideway is located at 197 Park Avenue near Goodman Street. Check out the great lineup of bands scheduled for both days!

Check out the Chinchillas CD release party
Thursday July 9th at 8:30pm
at Abilene Bar & Lounge located at
153 Liberty Pole Way, Rochester, NY
Cost: FREE

For all of you unfamiliar with the Chinchillas sound its somewhat hard to pin down it runs the gamut from 80’s mod-punk to bluesy rock along with americana rock-n-twang that you can really get down and boogie too. The overall ingredient is definitely fun! There songs cover various subjects from Taco Bell to the great anthem “Genesee Beer”. Check out their tunes for yourself on their myspace page. Perhaps they sum up their sound the best themselves, sounds like: “The thud you hear when the animal in the road disappears from your view.”

I also can’t go without mentioning the great selection of bottled beer over at Abilene! So hunker on down there, grab a Pork Slap and enjoy the Chinchillas on the deck.
