Scion AV is hosting a fantastic-looking garage-rock festival in Lawrence, Kan. on Oct. 2.
Sure the term “garage” is a little elastic here (some might consider The Oblivians a bit grittier and visceral than, say, the beachside popsicle that is Best Coast), but this extravaganza is liberal(ly awesome) in its curatorial ways.
Split between four venues and likely to split your face right open with excellence, the festival’s lineup so far includes the following:
King Khan & the Shrines
The Oh Sees
Times New Viking
Hunx & His Punx
Gentleman Jesse and His Men
Use the money you save on admission (that’s right, it’s a totally free, RSVP-style event) to load up on earplugs.
