Rowdy Akron Fest

Tired of the bland crafts, soft jazz, and tennis-shoe-sporting grannies that make up the usual arts-fair scene? Then check out today's inaugural Rowdy Indie Craft Fair at Akron's Studio 526, where a pinch of rowdiness enhances the natural flavor. Beginning at noon, count on quirky handmade crafts from local vendors and a schedule of nontraditional activities to make this event a little hipper than most. Among them: a free yoga demonstration, a graffiti art tutorial, and a performance by ShiSho, a band named after a series of Japanese fantasy novels. Also on hand will be the Rubber City Rollergirls — Akron's all-chick roller derby squad — and live music starting at 7 p.m. from the city's own indie-folk band Shivering Timbers and others. But the party doesn't end when the bands do: DJ Dewey Decibel will be spinning indie dance tunes until midnight or later, so there's plenty of time to get your dubstep on. Refreshments, including handmade pierogies and other hometown faves from local food trucks, will be available throughout the evening. Admission is free. BYO skinny jeans and Chuck Taylors.
