AS220 does a lot of things that ultimately work even though they make no sense when you say them out loud. Foo Fest, for instance. The only fundraising event for a large non-profit arts organization is… a low-cost festival that takes over a city block for twelve hours? And they’ve been doing this since like 2004 or something? For ten dollars you can see nineteen bands on two stages, mostly local performers with the added random pairing old-school Cleveland punks Pere Ubu and Rah Digga, a rapper best known for her association with Busta Rhymes around the turn of the millennium. There’s lots of family-friendly art stuff happening in the afternoon, then at night the street erupts into a big loud block party. It’s always a good time.
