TOTAL FEST X -- August 18-20, 2011 in Missoula, Montana
I've been busy the past few months helping to put together Total Fest, an annual DIY music fest here in Missoula, Montana started by my pals Josh and Niki at Wantage USA Records. This the tenth year anniversary and it goes down the weekend of August 18-20. This year, the 3-day weekend of music will feature 45 great bands from all over the US (and a few international ones, too) with something for everyone, including Big Business, Hammerhead, Helms Alee, The Men, Milk Music, Gun Outfit, Kowloon Walled City, Gull (Nate from Snack Truck / Ultra Dolphins) and more. Since the shows are at night, there are plenty of opportunities in the day time for hiking, biking, tubing, barbecues and a record swap on Saturday. Advance weekend tickets are now on sale for $45 (or $50 at the door). Consider making the trek and come see our rad town and some excellent music. It will be lots of fun!
Tickets, schedule and details at http://totalfest.org.
