Community radio station WMNF-88.5 is known for one big festival: Tropical Heatwave. But this year, they're branching out with a three-day fest that kicks off Friday at Sertoma Youth Ranch in Brooksville.

The inaugural Rockin' the Ranch music festival, which runs today through Sunday, offers pretty much what one might expect from the station known for its eclectic, genre-bending programming. Acts like He's My Brother She's My Sister, Black Taxi, Paper Bird, The Hip Abduction, and Johnny Cakes and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypso will all cross over into territory that is familiar to audiences older than 30.

In addition to the more rocking acts, the festival will feature a quieter "living room" stage with noted songwriters Fran Snyder, Paul Sprawl, Paul Schneider, Heather Pierson, Jon Carroll and Natalie Gelman.
