What You Missed: Ink-N-Iron Festival, OC BBQ Festival, Liquid Aloha Festival

Is it over already? We were all about the festivals this weekend. First, we hit up the 7th Annual Ink-N-Iron Festival, where once a year, all things rockabilly collide in one awesome place in Long Beach. We also surveyed the variety of roasting animals at the Orange County BBQ Festival at the Orange County Fairgrounds. And, finally, we threw our own little festival, the Liquid Aloha Festival, in Downtown Huntington Beach: Bands and booze. Freee!

And also on Saturday: Your favorite Orange County alt-weekly newspaper ev-er hosted a shindig at the Strand in Huntington Beach. Bands like Two Guns, Iglu and Hartly, Lee Koch, and Moonshine and the Drugs performed. You drank beer. Lots of it. And DJ Velvet Touch provided the noise between sets. See the photos here.
