If music festivals scare you, try some gentle immersion therapy with the Davis Music Fest. The three-day event has 40 artists of various genres playing local venues: Armadillo Music, Sudwerk and Delta of Venus, to name a few. It’s a veritable who’s-who of indie bands—so expect a whole hell of a lot of acoustic guitar. Strange Hotels and Salt Wizard are a couple of the standout artists, and the Philharmonik is performing. You don’t want to miss the Philharmonik. Proceeds from the event benefit the Davis School Arts Foundation, so you can feel good about the cost of your ticket. Davismusicfest.com.
