The first weekend of August is jammed with plenty of events and live acts throughout the Finger Lakes. Janelle Bradshaw has everything you need to know in this week’s edition of FLX Music 247. Festivals take centerstage this weekend, as Phelps hosts the Sauerkraut Festival and down on Seneca Lake is the Geneva Lakefront Garlic Festival. Keg & Barrel on Saturday host Irv Lyons, Jr. and The Light at 6 p.m. Lincoln Hill on Saturday has Roots and Boots, featuring four different country artists. Live from Linden returns with FABI World Music on Saturday and Woody’s in Seneca Falls will have Meyer & McGuire on Friday night. The Stone Cat Cafe will have Jazz Brunch this Sunday featuring the Jesse Collins Duo. The ongoing Skaneateles Music Festival continues through August 20 and the Ithaca Punk Rock Reunion is this Saturday. Janelle’s Artist of the Week is the F.A.R. Trio. The group performs original work and covers classic rock hits in their own tasteful recreative way. You can catch F.A.R. Trio this week at Vineyard View Winery and on August 28 at Two Goats Brewery.
