Whether you prefer to accessorize your BBQ with mac and cheese, collard greens, mashed potatoes, cornbread and coleslaw or you prefer to save room for the main event, the smoked and sauced meat, this 9th annual BBQ festival is for you. Whether you enjoy the modal dissonance of the dorian and locrian scales or you stick to the predictability of the pentatonic scale, this 9th annual Jazz and Blues fest is for you. And if you like sides, BBQ, Jazz and Blues music, then this fest is especially for you.

Downtown Brighton, Friday, September 5, 5:00pm-Midnight; Saturday, September 6, Noon-Midnight. brightoncoc.org
