Memorial Day Weekend wouldn’t be Memorial Day Weekend without the Marc’s Great American Rib Cook-off and Music Festival. The four-day event kicks off today at noon at Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica. Rib cookers from all around the country will set up booths so you can sample their variations on barbequed ribs. Entertainment acts are scheduled for each night too. Tonight, local cover bands Disco Inferno and the Spazmatics offer a “bone-crushing dance party.” Tonight’s admission is only $1 but tickets for tomorrow, Sunday and Monday start at $8. Classic rocker Joan Jett headlines tomorrow, emo rockers Taking Back Sunday play on Sunday and country rockers Blackberry Smoke headline on Monday. (Niesel)
