Mentioned briefly before, The Slackgaze zine is throwing a three-day festival in Bushwick this weekend (June 20 - 22) at 94 Evergreen Ave dubbed "Slackfest" with 50 or so bands, mostly local, playing. It kicks off today (6/20) at 3 PM, with such bands as Honduras, Sharkmuffin, Gingerlys, Life Size Maps, ONWE and loads more, and bands playing Saturday (6/21) and Sunday (6/22) include Turnip King, Grand Resort, Hippy, Haybaby, Arm Candy and more. One band you would think that would be playing Slackfest but isn't: Total Slacker.

The fest goes 3 PM - 2 AM daily, and is all ages. Tickets are $10 each day or you can buy a $20 pass that gets you into the whole thing. Full lineup and flyer below...

So, what you're basically saying is that there will be some crappy "festival" happening in Bushwick every weekend for the entire summer? Cool, got it. Can we talk about bands that anyone actually gives a shit about now?

Posted by David Welles | June 20, 2014 3:21 PM

do you seriously think your making the music scene better by posting dismissively negative comments about it?

Posted by David Welles | June 20, 2014 3:22 PM

my "ironic" positivity and your shameless negativity are two sides of the same coin.

Posted by David Welles | June 20, 2014 3:22 PM

if you want things to change, change them.

Posted by David Welles | June 20, 2014 3:23 PM

make the music you want to hear. engage with the artists in your community. challenge yourself. dont blame the outside world for creating your perspective.

Posted by David Welles | June 20, 2014 3:24 PM

apathetic negativity/positivity created slackgaze.

Posted by David Welles | June 20, 2014 3:25 PM

"irony" is just one way to acknowledge that fact...

Anonymous comments here make me want to track them all down and punch them in the fucking face. Yes, bad music can and will come out of any DIY scene but there is also good music too. Where do you think The Pixies or Nirvana started? These bands and others like them were heavily influenced by their DIY punk scene. You assholes are probably only saying that because you have never tried to achieve a goal as hard as trying to get somewhere in the music world in an industry that is way too over-saturated. The industry will crash and burn someday and we'll all release our music on the internet without a middleman trying to rob us of our hard earned money. Who are the bands you give a shit about? They would probably agree that this is the best way into infiltrating the music world nowadays.
