The Trash Bash Music Stash is this weekend. On July 19, neighbor Brandon Giannasi is hosting the Trash Bash Music Stasha litter walk that focuses on picking up trash near Greenville Avenue. Volunteers will be bused in via this super hippie party bus at 10 a.m., and they will be given coffee (thanks to Coffee Co.), water, gloves, bags and trash grabbers. Then from noon to 6 p.m., every volunteer is invited to enjoy live music and receive a $15 gift card for food and drinks at Truck Yard. Local performers include Gringo Soul, Tiger Darrow, Mo Strangs, and Poppy Xander. But here’s the thing: There are only 75 volunteer slots available. Check out the Facebook page for more.
