A big Saturday in music includes Toast of the Valley and Oliver’s Twist Street Fest — bluegrass, blues, rock and more
Sometimes, I just can’t get it all together. Another Top Tickets page is out there, and I’m verklempt over a couple of events that slipped past me.
The first one, Toast of the Valley, features bluegrass acts Larry Gillis and Swampgrass, The South Carolina Broadcasters, rock band Collateral, an open jam and a top 40 country band. Wine — from Fincastle Vineyards, Virginia Mountain Vineyards, Savoy Lee Winery and Blue Ridge Vineyard — food, arts and crafts will also be heavily in the mix at this event, scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on the lawm at the Kazim Temple, 628 Campbell Ave. S.W., near Jefferson Center. The nighttime country concert will be inside the temple.
On nearby 813 5th St. S.W. The Water Heater will host music for the event across the street — Oliver’s Twist Street Fest and Open House. Another Roadside Attraction and Jesse Ray Carter are on the bill for that action, which begins at 6 p.m. The renovated building across the street features a spa and beauty salon called Oliver’s Twist and an “upscale resale” joint called Twisted Market.
