10 (or 12) recommended Little 5 Fest shows to hit up this Saturday

The Little 5 Fest returns Sat., Sept. 29 with an eclectic roster of local music. Here’s a quick list of shows worth checking out

With nearly 100 local bands, solo acts, DJs, and knob-twiddlers descending upon Little 5 Points this Saturday (September 29) for the second annual Little 5 Fest, navigating the long list of performers can be a bit overwhelming. While there is an element of the usual suspects playing the fest, there's also some serious talent on the bill that should not be overlooked. Here’s a quick roundup of my recommended shows to hit up throughout the day.


—First and foremost, Fran Capitanelli and Brent Hinds are two of the finest guitar players this town has ever seen, and they're both playing this year’s fest. Fran's doing a solo set at Aurora Coffee (7 p.m.) and Brent's playing a Fiend Without A Face set in Star Bar’s main room stage (11 p.m.).
