Cavo comeback

A little over a month after releasing its latest album, Thick as Thieves, local rockers Cavo will be taking the stage at the festival on Sunday. As noted in a RFT interview earlier this year with lead singer Casey Walker, the band's new material touches on the group's resilience after transitioning to a new record label.

Greek Fire -- another band from St. Louis that has received some airplay on stations such as the Point -- will be performing at the festival on Saturday.

Classic Deth

When he's not playing around with his mini-horse or making news with his political opinions, Dave Mustaine is actually engaging in his day job by taking Megadeth on tour. If prior shows are any indication, there's a good bet that the band will perform many of its older songs -- such as "Peace Sells," "Sweating Bullets," "Symphony of Destruction" and "Hangar 18" -- at Saturday's show. The band will probably incorporate newer material as well, such as "Head Crusher."

Two-day pass

For people who don't mind watching bands from the amphitheater's lawn, two-day tickets are on sale for $48.50 on Ticketmaster's web site until midnight on Thursday. Considering it costs at least $65 to see Incubus at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, that's not too bad of a value.

Every radio station has its plusses and minuses, and the Point is no exception. But for fans of contemporary rock music or outdoor festivals, Pointfest is a more-than-serviceable arena for weekend entertainment.
