The fifth annual Blues, Views & BBQ festival happens all this weekend at the Levitt Pavilion in Westport, a two-day celebration of the blues in a town about as far removed from the delta as you can get. Some of the acts topping the bill this year are Popa Chubby (pictured), Anders Osborne, Big Sam's Funky Nation and Brother Joscephus and the Love Revival Revolution Orchestra. But there's much more than just music. Like a BBQ cook off. And a mechanical bull. And a pie-eating contest. And beer. And stuff for kids too.
