Being originally from Wisconsin, I could normally tend to care less.
Last year's lineups of tiny street festivals was stupid good. Menomena, White Rabbits, Handsome Furs, Flossatradamus, Harlem Shakes, Thao, Night Marchers etc. at Ribfest and Do Division
Tapes n Tapes and Art Brut played the first ever "green fest".
Haymarket Riot and Turbo Fruits played to NOBODY at the first ever...what...Metronome fest???? NOBODY!!!! Turbofruits were happy to drive to drive that long just to get $600. Me and two dudes rocked out.
Made for great footage.
It was a huge fucking surprise.
Hope this summers line-ups can compete.
Hideout needs a proper block party this year.
