El Rio
38 is an unceremonious birthday. There are no big parties with fancy dresses, no party-store gag gifts that remind you how old you’re getting, and no pilgrimages to bars in the name of getting (legally) trashed for the first time.

But this is El Rio we’re talking about here. On Saturday (that’s tomorrow!), El Rio is celebrating their 38th in a very ceremonious way — with local bands and music from 5 to close.

Expect performances from Double Duchess, The Go Going Gone Girls, the always-exciting Quaaludes, and Sex Alien, performing tributes to recently-passed legends Prince and David Bowie.

The whole thing is hosted by Nancy French and Leigh Crow, and there will be free BBQ from 4-7.
