It's here. Finally. The Total Fest XIII schedule is now online at the Total Fest blog, which means—yep—the big three-day, independent rock, sludge, punk, country-punk, experimental music festival is just around the corner. The organizers of the non-profit event have been leaking the bands since May, teasing us with one exciting addition (some Total Fest veterans, some newbies) after another, and now it's getting real, dudes. A quick glance shows a sweet line-up of 40-plus bands starting from Thursday, August 14, with groups including Shannon and the Clams to Saturday, August 16, with closers Wolf Eyes and Criminal Code.
Full access passes run $55, but you can also buy tickets for individual sets at all the different venues, which include the ZACC, Freecycles, Badlander and Palace. (The show at the Big Dippers is free.) Visit the Total Fest blog to purchase tickets.
