Twenty-Four Hour Party People

Grab your bong -- Nelson Ledges hosts a hippie fest.

Cleveland theater
Yes, this weekend’s Lazy Daisy Fest at Nelson Ledges Quarry Park features “all Dead -- all day and all night,” says spokesman Evan Kelley. But unlike the venue’s other hippie bashes, the fourth-annual 24-hour Lazy Daisy blowout is a more family-friendly gathering. “It’s smaller and more local,” says Kelley. “It’s much more intimate. And since I’m not running around breaking up nonsense, I can actually have some fun.”

The JiMiller Band (featuring former Oroboros frontman Jim Miller) headlines a bill that includes the Waterband, Fungus, Deep Space 6, Aiko, and the Burning River Band. “Settle into a comfort zone; get to know each other,” advises Kelley. “You can let loose, dance, swim . . . And when you leave, you leave a little closer to your family and a little closer to who you are.” Spoken like a true hippie.
