The Grind:


To us at The Local ARTery, the weekend is very important. It's something that we take very seriously, and you should too—because you only live once, and there are no second chances. So join us on a trip around the weekend, and follow our credo: Turn on ... Tune in ... Go out!



Curation of Sound: A Vinyl Record Listening Experience

presented by Vatican City Vinyl 


9 p.m.

No Cover

Growlers Pub

2831 N. Tamiami Trail



Vinyl night is very cool—

The Vatican City Vinyl crew sets up a couple turn tables and spins their ultimate collection of records all night long. If you've ever heard a good LP played through quality speakers, then you know; but if you haven't, then we suggest coming out Thursday night, because it's time to learn. And, it's at Growlers Pub on Sarasota, which is the best craft beer bar around.  



Wild Root


10 p.m. - 2 a.m.

No Cover

The Lost Kangaroo Pub
406 12th Street W. (Old Main Street)


Local indie-funk rockers Wild Root bring a hoppin’ party with them everywhere they go, and with the extensive selection of craft beers on tap at The Roo, there’s no telling how crazy this show will be. We hope to see you there! Listen to Wild Root HERE

Come Back Alice 


10 p.m. - 2 a.m.

No Cover

Dcoy Ducks

5410 Marina Drive

Holmes Beach


A lot of bands go for the 60's thing, but without filling their set with Doors and Stones covers, most fall very short—Sarasota's Come Back Alice, though, is not among them. Described as "Funky Eclectic Rock," this band would've fit nicely on any bill at Filmore West, and the integrity of the tradition they carry is rock solid.
