Cowboy Mouth, Oysterfest returns at new location

Two familiar names are returning to uptown Friday. After taking a break, the annual Guinness/Newcastle Oysterfest featuring New Orleans' preeminent party-rock band, Cowboy Mouth, returns but this time the hub for tunes, booze, and food will take place at NC Music Factory's Fountain Plaza.

The annual Oysterfests became a fixture at Dixie's Tavern during the `00s. The Music Factory's Ken Thomas was behind the original parties at Dixie's and decided given the fest's past popularity to bring it back. Sponsors Guinness and Newcastle were on board and Cowboy Mouth was eager to rejoin the party.

Gates open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance at The NC Music Factory's Saloon or by clicking here. Admission is $15 at the door.

Cajun Papa will serve Apalachicola oysters from the Gulf with Texas Pete and hand-grated horseradish root cocktail sauce. In addition to its opening set, Charlotte's Simplified will perform at the late night after party at The Saloon. For more information go to
