Check Out the Huge Lineup of Phoenix Bands at Bisbee's Sidepony Express Music Fest

With nearly 80 musicians playing, Sidepony Express Music Festival in Bisbee promises to be one wild weekend. From Friday, November 14, to Sunday, November 16, folks from as far as Los Angeles, North Carolina, New Mexico, El Paso, Nashville, and Portland will make it to the southeastern Arizona mining town for some mile-high celebrations. Best of all, the festival is free and open to the public.

Some lineup highlights include Jerusafunk, Dadadoh, Wolvves, Japhy's Descent, Bad Neighbors, Captive Cooks, Manifest Sound, Watch for Rocks, Fairy Bones, and Field Tripp. Though it's a three-and-a-half hour drive from Phoenix and two hours from Tucson, it seems as good excuse as any to enjoy the cool weather the Grand Canyon State has gotten lately. Plus, this town promises plenty to do with a wealth of curios and little trinket shops, or at the very least, a change from the beige scenery in town to different shades of brown. Adventure!
