Information about this year's Oysterfest is hard to come by, but punchy when you find it. Sifting through the event's simple Web site, we deduce that it's an outdoor food festival featuring bands you like. Seriously. Cake, the Raveonettes, Jackie Greene, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down. Other than that, right, who cares? It's a heavily sponsored event, we can vouch for that, and guess what? Beer plans to be sold! And, um, oysters! (Theres also a "Shuck and suck contest," cooking demos, and an "Oyster-pairing room.") Ten years have taught the organizers to just bring you what you want.
