Check out music, storytelling and art at the 5th annual FLOW Northside Arts Crawl.
This is a great weekend for festivals of all sorts, as well as some mind-bending modern dance.
The 5th Annual FLOW Northside Arts Crawl takes place Saturday from 3PM to 8PM along West Broadway. Highlights include: Asian Dance and storytelling, performances by the Black Storytellers Alliance, live music, live music, theater and spoken word. (My favorite - recognition ceremony for Northside High School graduates who are going to college.)
