Today's Question: What excites you about Roots 'N' Blues 'N' BBQ this year?

In only its third year, Roots 'N' Blues 'N' BBQ has become a staple of Columbia, much like the True/False Film Festival. Residents and visitors look forward to the bands and the barbecue for months.

It's finally that time and there's been a major change: admission. The brand-new $10 per-day fee will get you into the heart of the entertainment, although those looking for a free ticket can volunteer to help out the festival.

We've compiled links to YouTube videos of each of the acts, with a list of top picks. And of course the food options alone are a draw for some.

What, if anything, are you looking forward to this weekend? Will the new cost deter your Roots 'N' Blues experience?
