Electric Avenue Music and Arts Festival lights up Five Points

This Labor Day weekend, over 22 bands performed at the Electric Avenue Music and Arts Festival, which took place at the historic Five Points neighborhood, between 25th and 26th streets on Welton Street (outside of Cervantes). A variety of music genres were played, ranging from jam, rock and bluegrass to electronic and hip-hop. The ultimate Michael Jackson tribute band, Who's Bad, was one of the highlights of the two-day music fest.

In addition to several stages and all the great bands, the street was lined with booths that served food, and showcased local arts and crafts. There were hula-hoop girls spinning about, and several artists were doing live painting throughout the day.
