  • The main stage acts at this year’s Santa-Cali-Gon Days will bring a familiar feel to the Labor Day weekend festival.
    The event kicks off Thursday, Aug. 28, with the carnival just off the Independence Square, and the festival itself – taking up the entire Square – formally kicks off at noon Friday and runs through 5 p.m. Labor Day.
    The main stage has performances each night. The Independence Chamber of Commerce, which runs the event, on Thursday announced the lineup:
    • Friday is blues night, with Samantha Fish at 7 p.m. and Blue Springs band Trampled Under Foot at 8:30.
    • Saturday is country night, with Outlaw Junkies at 5:30, Travis Marvin at 7 and perennial favorite Lo Cash Cowboys at 8:30.
    • Sunday is tribute night. Bad Disposition, a Kansas City band covering a variety of acts that it says ranges from “Maroon 5, Paramore, Kings of Leon ... (to) Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Led Zeppelin, Cheap Trick, and Pat Benatar,” is at 5:30. Rock, Paper, Scissors (Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzie) is at 7. Liverpool (the Beatles) is at 8:30.
    • Local favorites play from noon to 5 Monday. Those will be the winners of the Three Trails Singer/Songwriter Competition, being held at the Main Street Coffee House.
    Still to be announced by the chamber are the lineups for the community stage and the gospel stage.
