If there's one thing I know for certain, it's that we can always use more jam band festivals. Thankfully, there's a new one that will set up shop in Medina this weekend.

The inaugural Dead Grass Festival will be held Friday through Sunday on the wooded property of the Medina Coon Club (8150 Coon Club Road). The two-night bill includes Aliver Hall, Yosemight, Dead Ahead Ohio and more. (Tickets run $30 for the weekend, $20 for just overnight Saturday.)

As the organizers put it, this is just one more opportunity for everyone in the area to get outside and enjoy some fine local music. And, indeed, these bands performing this weekend are all excellent.

"We wanted to support local music and a get a festival into a new area," one of the organizers tells Scene. "It started as a small, simple idea: Bring something to this area for a lot of our family and friends that can't afford to go out to those big festivals." The crew are planning a second installment for the fall, so keep your eyes peeled for that later in the year.

Here's the schedule for this weekend's fun:
