SATURDAY PICK | Roots, rock, and deep blues on Lake Street


Don’t be confused, chess gurus: it isn’t that kind of Deep Blues you’ll find on July 14 in the Lake/Minnehaha environs. The second annual Roots, Rock & Deep Blues Festival sprawls over four stages and features 24 acts including Black Audience, the Goondas, Grant Hart, and Charlie Parr. Since any festival with “deep blues” in its title is required by the state licensing board to feature at least one guy with “Guitar,” “Mississippi,” or “Slim” in his name, Mississippi Gabe Carter will make an appearance as well.
