olume, the Inlander-organized MUSIC FESTIVAL on May 31-June 1, is a movable feast of glorious abundance. At any given point — say, at 8:15 pm of the first night — you might have to decide whether you’re in the mood for the country twang of Santa Poco (playing at River City Brewing’s outdoor stage), the silky smooth R&B of MistaDC (at nYne) or the garage rock from the newly formed local band Big Raffle (at Baby Bar). Two more bands start at 8:30, two more at 8:45, two more at 9 and five more at 9:15. Yes, it can be overwhelming in the best of ways — such is a feast of 100 bands in 11 venues over two incredible nights — and in the middle of this week’s issue we have the official guide to Volume with everything you need to navigate our favorite weekend of the year. See you out there! — JACOB H. FRIES, Editor
