Free downloads of 64 local bands from REVERBfestOctober 1st, 2008 by travis hay
Seattle Weekly’s REVERBfest is happening Saturday in Ballard. Eight dollars gets you access to 64 of Seattle’s brightest up-and-coming bands.
To mark REVERBfest Seattle Weekly’s Reverb blog has offered up downloads from every band that is playing its self-titled festival. The best part about this batch of tracks is that it is FREE. It includes downloads from See Me River, Husbands Love Your Wives, BOAT, Mono In VCF and all the other local bands set to party in Ballard this weekend. You can access the download here.
Buy your wristband for REVERBfest here. I recommend picking it up prior to Saturday because the day of REVERBfest the wristbands are $10, not the $8 they are now.
Last year’s REVERBfest was a smashing success and I expect more of the same this year. Having local musicians take over downtown Ballard made the event feel like a daylong musical pub crawl. Ms. Led, Grynch, Awesome!, The Whore Moans and a small little band called Fleet Foxes were some of the highlights from last year. This year Team Gina, SHIM, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth and the Moondoggies are some of the groups providing the soundtrack to a day of amazing Northwest music.
On a side note, did you know I have been spelling REVERBfest wrong? Apparently, the proper spelling is REVERBfest, not ReverbFEST. That’s what happens when organizations insist on silly capitalizations and spellings of things, they tend to get misspelled, or at least miscapitalized.
Check back tomorrow for my tentative REVERBfest schedule and come back early netx week for coverage, which should include a photo gallery and wrap up of what should be a rocking Saturday in Ballard.
