The official four-day party will be held at one of 6th Street’s biggest music venues, The Stage on Sixth (508 E. 6th Street), from noon to 6 p.m. In the days leading up to the event, we’ll post previews on the artists on the lineup.

Latest Album: I Like To Keep Myself In Pain
For Fans Of: Sera Cahoone, Shovels & Rope
If you didn’t have Kelly Hogan’s I Like To Keep Myself In Pain on your radar in 2012, you missed out. The album, which made our Best of 2012 list, is filled with piercing lyrics and powerful vocals and boasts standout tracks like “Dusty Groove” and “We Can’t Have Nice Things.” She’s worked with everyone from Neko Case and Jakob Dylan to Andrew Bird and The Indigo Girls, so there’s no doubt that Hogan’s performance of her own material at Stage on Sixth will be one to remember.
