The Goldrush Music Festival is going down this weekend at the Sidewinder and Crash 45. The festival, now in its third year, features an array of renown acts from the experimental music world, including Rene Hell, Scammers, MV&EE, Caddywhompus and Noveller, among others. Aside from its innovative music programming, there's another unique thing about Goldrush, and that's the free shuttle. There's several locations throughout the city in which you can catch a ride tonight and tomorrow night. The rides are courtesy of Bus To Show and will also feature live on-board performances from Alphabets and Tommy Metz. Keep reading for times and locations.
