The Fest is back for round 11 (!) adding bands from across the spectrum of punk rock for the multi-day Gainesville, Florida extravaganza. The Fest announced its initial lineup earlier this month but has doubled that number, bringing the total tally to a whopping 217, and there are more to go! The lineup includes Lagwagon, Naked Raygun, Baroness, Red Fang, Off with Their Heads, Torche, Valient Thorr, 7 Seconds, F.Y.P., Braid, Titus Andronicus, Toys That Kill, Underground Railroad to Candyland, Frank Turner and many more (see below). Tickets are now on sale (and sold out quick last year).
Full lineup is below, expect to see some surprises at The Fest as well; Sleepytime Trio reunited there last year.
The Court Tavern is closed indefinitely, owner Bobby Albert said on Wednesday.Bad news for NJ, New Brunswick, Rutgers and music in general.
The venerable New Brunswick club was shut on Wednesday. Albert declined to comment further on the club's closing when reached at his North Brunswick home.
There was no notice of its closing posted at the club at 124 Church St., its website or its Facebook page. Music promoter Andy "Diamond" De Nicolo said that he was not alerted of the club's closing, nor did he known how the situation would affect upcoming shows scheduled there, including the high-profile concert by city punk legends Ensign on Friday.

A hiatus, a reformation, a break-up, a departure and another reformation all were the prelude to 108's return to the stage on Saturday (1/8). The band played the first of two NYC shows that day (the first of three overall) at Cake Shop. The show took place earlier in the day, and was followed by the ill-fated Forgetters show that eventually led to the the Cake Shop basement being closed down by police (due to capacity concerns).
Cake Shop was predictably packed for 108 too, and the band easily delivered the best set of all the bands on the bill, much like they reportedly did a few hours later at an also-packed Death By Audio. Each show featured different sets and different support: Ensign, Incendiary, and Torchbearer opened Cake Shop, while DBA got Black Kites, Heavy Breath, and Primitive Weapons.

Rob Fish OF 108
After a bit of a false alarm, Rob Fish is BACK in 108 and BrooklynVegan and 1000 Knives are proud to present their return with Ensign and Incendiary at Cake Shop on January 8, 2011! Tickets are on sale, and going FAST. The show is part of a short tour that will be announced soon.
The band released the excellent 18.61 earlier this year on Deathwish Records.
