July 25: Far West Fest at Point Reyes Station

Nothing says “community radio” quite like KWMR, Marin County’s only radio station, and nothing helps KWMR quite like the annual Far West Fest. Held in the “Love Field” just outside Point Reyes Station, the festival in years past has raised money with appearances by Camper Van Beethoven, Vinyl and Poor Man’s Whiskey. This year things get especially funky with Bay Area legend Lyrics Born tearing up the stage with songs from his latest joint, Everywhere at Once. Once blazing up nightclubs as part of the hip-hop duo Latyrx, Lyrics Born underwent a reinvention as a soul singer around the turn of the century and has since strode full-bore into a syncopated blend of gravel, swagger and spit. Also on the lineup is established songwriter Sean Hayes, whose softer tones should provide a calm before Lyrics Born’s storm, as well as Albino, Red Meat, the Green String Farm Band and others. Food, drink and circus acts round out a lovely way to spend an afternoon in West Marin on Saturday, July 25, at Love Field. 11171 Sir Francis Drake Blvd., Point Reyes Station. 11am–7:30pm. $10–$30. 415.663.8068.Gabe Meline
