Mentioned it before, but seeing as people's minds (i.e., mine) tend to wander, I figured it'd be a good idea to post a little prod up here about this Saturday's coming second-ever installment of The Festival at Mink, "curated" (so to speak) by Alkari-an Jason Smith and boasting a ton of excellent bands & musician types.
There've been a couple of changes to the previously-posted list of players, primarily that Mike Booher and the Wild Turkeys (which includes folks from Zykos and Zookeeper) and Orents Stirner are both unable to play, but the lineup's still damn good. Here's the current schedule, as it stands right now:
|7:00||The Dry Season||[Swooning, swaying, somewhat psych-sounding indie-pop]|
|7:45||Covington||[Not a clue; haven't heard anything by these folks, sorry...]|
|8:15 (Downstairs)||Gretchen Schmaltz||[Sweet-voiced, unadorned-yet-beautiful indie-folk pop; member of The Western Civilization]|
|8:45||Flowers to Hide||[Hazy, brooding, Britpop-influenced rock that's reminiscent of Ride more than anything else]|
|9:15 (Downstairs)||Giant Battle Monster||[Wild-eyed, noisy, stream-of-consciousness, ADD-addled prog-metal]|
|9:45||The Sour Notes||[Beautifully delicate, electronics-tinged indie-pop that swoons like the best old-school Darla Recs stuff]|
|10:15 (Downstairs)||DuneTX||[A scene fixture; wide-ranging but always catchy & melodic alt-rock, like a Texafied OK Go]|
|10:45||Alkari||[Straight-up, unpretentiously label-free rock, one part Arcade Fire, one part 'Mats]|
|11:30||The Manichean||[Cool, literate indie-rock that's smarter than you]|
|12:20||White Rhino||[Snarling, heavy-ass, metallic, seriously retro-ified psych-rawk; like Clutch covering Mötörhead]|
Anyway, it's going to be a pretty great show, and for a relatively-small $8 for the of-age types or $10 for the underagers. Come on out to The Mink this weekend.
