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:

The Oblivians
The Gories
The Raveonettes 
The Greenhornes
The Ponys
King Khan & the Shrines
Cloud Nothings 
Best Coast 
The Oh Sees
Human Eye
Times New Viking
Hunx & His Punx
The Clean
Gentleman Jesse and His Men
Rooftop Vigilantes
Cola Freaks
Happy Birthday
Gaye Blades
Digital Leather
Bad Sports
Sex Beet
Garotas Suecas
White Wires
Natural Child

Use the money you save on admission (that’s right, it’s a totally free, RSVP-style event) to load up on earplugs.
