"For 4 years now Wham City has been organizing the WHARTSCAPE. What started as a summer warehouse party turned into a much bigger, multi-day outdoor festival with thousands of bands, performers, and folks traveling to Baltimore from all across the US and Europe.More info and full, 140 band lineup below...
Since, we organize this festival out of pocket and in our spare time, it is important for us to keep it comfortable and enjoyable for us to do. One thing we talked about at the end of last year's festival was shrinking it down slightly and having it feel more community based and familiar.
This year isn't focused around headliners, but mainly performers and friends that make up the community we tour, work and live in.
We are also greatly reducing the number of MEGA-PASSES (the 3 day pass ticket that grants you entry to every show and every day).
ONLY 300 Mega-Passes will be sold; this is the only guarantee that you can see all the shows.
Tickets will be sold to the individual shows, but it is strongly suggested that you buy a Mega-Pass, as it saves you money and assures you take in the entire poo-poo.
Whartscape will take place July 10-11-12 at the Baltimore Museum of Art, Maryland Institute College of Art Studio Center Parking Lot, and Load of Fun.
We will begin selling tickets at 12 Noon, Monday, June 29th.

Don't confuse this post with coverage of the 2008 Bang on a Can Marathon. In no way are we trying to say Dan Deacon is more important than anyone else that played during the twelve hour concert. It's just that Leia didn't go to the rest of the show because she was out doing something else (probably having more fun that she would have had spending all night in the World Financial Center). She (and about 100 other people according to her estimations) showed up in time for the 4am free Dan Deacon performance, or more specifically, for:
Dan Deacon, Kevin Omeara and Jeremy Hyman performing Ultimate Reality Part 3 by Dan Deacon (with visuals by Jimmy Joe Roche)Dan and friends ended up only performing for about 20 minutes. It was a memorable 20 minutes though - to the overnight security guards anyway.....
