Aaaaannnnddd ... Forecastle Fest 2014 gets underway on at Waterfront Park on July 18, with the usual action- and music-packed schedule, this time well-lubricated with bourbon  as well as all the other usual beverages. The Friday schedule includes the following performers: Action Bronson, Spoon, Willie Watson, Local Natives, Against Me!, Twenty One Pilots, The Districts, Foy Vance, Local Natives, JJ Grey and MOFRO, Public, MiMOSA, Leagues, Old Baby, Benjamin Booker and The Black Lips. There is really no point in trying to pick one out to write about, although, The Black Lips get the closer spot on Friday. Don’t overdo  – there are more days of music ahead. Tickets? Oh, lord, the ticket prices can be a mystery but the numbers generally posted are $84.50, $94.50 & UP, emphasis on UP.

Here’s a little video about the Kentucky Bourbon Lodge:

Krazy Fest Features And Plugs

 LMNEditor, Rock  Comments Off on Krazy Fest Features And Plugs
May 202011
 

The weekend is nearly upon us and the big shout-outs and other plugs for events happening in the next couple of days are legion: first and foremost, of course, is the Krazy Fest 2011, which is now not exactly, perfectly the mad punk sweat-and-adrenaline bash it once was, but it’s in that direction. Joe Lord at the C-J has a preview piece that includes a phoner with Against Me’s Tom Gabel, which also ran in this week’s Velocity. We have already pointed to the LEO article about Krazy Fest, but if you missed it, here it is again. For the whole band schedule, click over to http://www.krazy-fest.com/. For venue info, click here. Just remember, even hard-core punks grow older, if not necessarily up.
