City Slang: VetFest tonight



Saturday night sees the annual VetFest take place at the Timber Wolf Tavern in Redford. The action starts with the National Anthem courtesy of Jennifer Nasto at 4 p.m. Cover is $5 minimum, though you can decide what to pay. It’s all for the veterans.

Other acts performing over the course of the afternoon and evening are Medisin Wheel, Sweet Crystal, the Romeo Flynns and Al Jacquez of Savage Grace.

Sweet Crystal says, “Come at 4PM - come at 6 PM - come at 8PM - come at 10PM - come at midnight - just make it a point to come by, drop a few bucks into the benefit and enjoy all types and styles of music, food and good times.”
