In his Critics' Pick in this week's Scene, contributor Joe Nolan calls the Tomato Art Festival "one of Nashville’s oddest and most tenacious summer traditions," as well as "a big-ass party that goes until Five Points closes down at 3 a.m." Besides the numerous art and food events, there's a ton of live music — so much that it wouldn't fit within the confines of a Saturday, and the fest now includes a Friday night concert. It's all free and open to the public, and both days feature well-rounded bills stocked with Cream favorites.

Starting at 7 p.m. tonight, swing by the Main Stage in the parking lot of Beyond the Edge on South 11th Street to catch up-and-coming Bowling Green indie act Buffalo Rodeo, psych-rockers Majestico and genre-hopping MC Chancellor Warhol (get up to date on him via Itoro Udoko's review of his latest full-length, Paris is Burning).

Saturday's events are spread over four stages all across Five Points. Experimental surf outfit The Beech Benders open the Main Stage at 11 a.m., where you can also catch ELEL's cool, danceable pop, Marquee Mayfield's groovy soul and much more. Other highlights include Girls Up Loud, a vocal group performance featuring young women and sponsored by Fanny's House of Music, as well as harmony-powered lady rockers Churchyard and country-inflected pop-punk mainstay Richard DuBois on the stage at Edley's.

Haven't had enough yet? Starting at 9, DeRobert and the Half-Truths and A.J. and the Jiggawatts throw down some serious soul at The 5 Spot. Take a look at the full schedule after the jump.
