It’s starting to feel a lot like summer. June is officially under way this weekend, and having the short work week just makes things a whole lot better.

Live performances from P.O.D., Mixmaster Mike and Hit Dog Hollar, with the proceeds from the event benefiting Grind for Life, a nonprofit dedicated to assisting those affected by cancer by providing financial assistance and education in cancer survival and recovery.
