After hours

The free, outdoor music of Bele Chere ends at 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday (earlier on Sunday), but unless you've had too much sun, too much to drink or you're just getting too old, the festivities continue into the early morning. Downtown clubs keep live music rocking until last call, so don't miss the late-night action. The official festival may be over, but the party is just getting started. For a complete listing of shows, check out Clubland in this week's Xpress.
