Next weekend, Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist's farm in rural Clinton County will once again be hopping with live music, workshops and art displays and presentations for their Nowhere Else festival. The brain-trust behind Cincinnati music legends Over the Rhine has been hosting/curating the event for the past four years now. They recently released the schedule for this year's Memorial Day weekend bash, which you can peruse below.
