The Tattooed Moose to celebrate local music & meats at Moosefest

Scene from Moosefest.

The Tattooed Moose’s annual showcase of local music has shortened its name to Moosefest this year, but its lineup of talented homegrown artists is no less meaty.

The event formerly known as Moosetoberfest, and before that, Rocktoberfest, will feature performances by eight bands throughout the evening, including Bill Carson, Hermit’s Victory, Faline and Mechanical River. Another highlight each year is the “Meat Raffle,” a giveaway that’s exactly what it sounds like. Every beer order comes with a raffle ticket, which is entered into the raffle of various meat prizes.

In past years, the giveaway has included pork chops, specialty bacon, “mystery meat platters” and even chicken feet and gizzards. If that doesn’t get your mouth watering, perhaps the beer specials will: $5 Oktoberfest drafts and $6 for a shot of well liquor and a 16-ounce can of Pabst Blue Ribbon.

When: 6 p.m. Sunday

Where: 1137 Morrison Drive
