For the love of beer…
It’s almost time for one of our all-time favorite annual events—Emerald Coast Beer Festival. We look forward to this event pretty much all year because the only thing better than drinking beer is drinking beer for a good cause, and Beer Fest proceeds benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida and Seville Rotary. The big event is Sept. 9 and tickets are on sale now. emeraldcoastbeerfest.com.
“Watch The Throne”
After months of anticipation, Jay-Z and Kanye West have finally released their collaborative album “Watch the Throne”. Does it live up to the gold-leaf hype? Maybe not, but it’s still pretty great. If you don’t download the entire thing, at least get “Otis”. itunes.com.
Jahman Brahman at Hopjacks
“Shred ‘N’ Flow” is how Jahman Brahman describes its sound. You can decide how accurate that is when you check out this five-piece collaboration from Asheville, N.C. on Saturday, Aug. 20. hopjacks.com, jahmanbrahman.com.
