Riverfest releases advance tickets, drops the buttons

Starting today, local and area Walgreens will offer advance three-day passes to this year's Riverfest at $15 a pop—half off of the $30 admission at the gate. Check out a list of participating Walgreens locations here. This is, of course, a "while supplies last" sort of thing, so slice off a bit of that paycheck you're getting today and save yourself some money down the road. Because, y'know, corn dogs don't just grow on trees.

Just a reminder: Announced Riverfest acts include Widespread Panic, Papa Roach, Barenaked Ladies, Digital Underground, Poison, Pat Green, Nelly, REO Speedwagon, Charlie Daniels Band and Trout Fishing in America.

The festival goes down Memorial Day weekend, May 27-29.

Check out the new dispatch from That Guy From Riverfest. Good lookin' shirt. Also, this year, the festival is dropping the long-time "button as ticket" tradition in favor of wristbands.
