Ska-punk royalty Sublime with Rome, hip-hop icons Cypress Hill, and reggae-rock party animals Pepper pool their crowd-pleasing talents to devise a surefire prescription for the summertime blues. Carrying on the legacy of legendary singer Bradley Nowell, dead-ringer Rome Ramirez leads Sublime with Rome through energetic numbers from its newest record, Yours Truly, as well as rock-radio mainstays, such as “Santeria” and “What I Got,” which still dominate airwaves with a contagiously laid-back attitude. Multiplatinum hip-hop group Cypress Hill continues to meld worldly genres and salute organic gardening in hits such as “How I Could Just Kill a Man” and “Insane in the Brain.” Heading up the summer fun pack, the Hawaii and California hybrid of Pepper stomps and grinds with goodtime odes to love and pogo sticks, as heard in their song “Give It Up.” With general-admission tickets, fans can bring blankets or rent chairs to snag space in the festival seating area or graze and daze upon the lawn as upbeat tunes accentuate the sunshine.

A selection of appetizers includes favorites such as chicken wings and jalapeño poppers. Within the barn-style building and spacious open-air patio, revelers grab a bite, sip libations from the full bar, or gaze at the spot on the moon where Neil Armstrong first body-slammed Buzz Aldrin.

A cozy restaurant by day and rocking concert venue by night, Cypress Creek Cafe pairs hearty casual American cuisine with jams from some of the Lone Star State's most promising bands.

Satisfy your sweet tooth with a homemade seasonal pie or a stack of pancakes during the popular weekend breakfast. Just down the hallway, the Buzzard Bar packs them in on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings. The reason? Live blues, country, and rock performances that get the crowd moving.
