What the Heck is An Aber

By Mick Holien

I guess I never gave it a second thought – Aber Day Reunion – Everybody remembers those big parties with over-the-top music that prompted thousands to a remote Miller Creek gully location where the OK Rodeo previously was held.

I want to set aside confusion that this concert has anything to do with planting trees (Arbor Day) and instead has been regenerated to continue a platform of cutting edge music featuring the state’s most famous band, the Mission Mountain Wood Band (M2WB), which traditionally upstaged more name and popular groups when returning to the Missoula event.

But since I have been asked who they are and what this is trust me when I say Sam Riddle performing on the same bill as his father, M2WB’ bassist for the first time, Andrea Harsell and Luna (Rohaa)joining the evening, well we’ll be talking about it the rest of the summer.

Flathead Brewing Company will sell a concert only “Aber Day Ale” and there’s load of surprises.

Motor Home and, dry camping, vending available and hey aren’t you curious about the Regatta shoreline Amphitheater along the Flathead River at the Polson Fairgrounds

Family friendly, right after the car show and tickets available locally this week or $35 in advance at grizalum.com. It’s all part of Summerfest with live music outside Friday night at the Red Lion.

Dance, dance, dance the night away or anchor out, watch the sunset and catch some water.

Or pitch a tent early and make your own mosh pit.

Saturday Aug. 12 3p.m.-9p.m.

An Anderson Broadcasting Charitable Foundation event with proceeds to area non profits.
