SNOOOZE FEST 2008!
We said we didn't wanna do another fest, and we still don't. But these bands just happen to all be crossing through Chicago on the same weekend.
What is SNOOOZE FEST? Three days of unprocessed, uncategorizable, and unadulterated underground music that everyone doesn't know about yet. We're not talking about the bands that already have four or five albums under their belt and have toured Japan and South Africa, but the new up-and-coming raw and real bands that will be your favorites by this time next year. Yes, you too can find out about great new music on your own, without the soiled fingers of "the industry" telling you what is en vogue.
For three nights, spread over two different venues during the weekend of July 18-20th in Chicago, you can see what's next in the world of underground music, and safely avoid the sweaty armpits, long lines at the bathroom, and $5 bottles of water from the outdoor fork-fest scene.
