McRaneys Tavern is hosting its very own music and beer festival, with live performances Matt Hires, Jeff Ilgenfritz (of Mumpsy) and Oak Hill (not to be confused with Cyprus Hill, sorry, couldn't resist). Chow down on some grilled pizza provided by Lola's Pizzeria, and wash it down with a free Terrapin Beer. Enjoy $3.50 Terrapin Rye Ale and Terrapin India Brown Ale, and $5 Terrapin Rye Squared and Terrapin Side Project.
22-year-old Tampa-based singer/songwriter Matt Hires plays easy-going introspective acoustic inide pop that might remind you of Ryan Adams or Dave Matthews. He will be performing new tunes from his EP "Live from a Hitel Cafe."
