UrbanArt2009 You’ve probably seen the posters with the classic car below the paintbrushes (look right). If you haven’t seen them, you’re probably living in the wrong century, or at least the wrong part of the South Sound. The poster sets the stage for this year’s version of the Urban Art Festival, titled Iron Vs. Art â€" which will add classic cars to what’s typically a classic mix of art, music, barefootedness and dreadlocks.

With Hotrod-a-Rama on hiatus this year, organizer Johanna Gardner has teamed up with the Lifters Car Club and The Swiss Pub for her downtown Tacoma festival Saturday. Expect art exhibits, music (live and DJ), a beer garden, live painting, food, dancing, performance art, healing arts practices, demonstrations, and now â€" badass cars.

Live music from:
    Hard Money Saints
    The Georgetown Orbits
    Vicci Martinez
    Life Cycle

Glass Blowing Demonstrations

DJ stage featuring local DJs

Pre-1973 car show hosted by the Lifters

Performance Art featuring:
    Tribal bellydance
    Josh Rizeberg
    Barefoot Studios


Local Vendors & Food

[The Swiss, Saturday, Aug. 1, noon to 9 p.m., free, 19th and Jefferson, Tacoma]
