Fest bands cover each other on new comp (Catbite, Mikey Erg, Days N Daze & more)
Usually, Halloween in the punk world means The Fest, but that's not happening this year for obvious reasons. Fortunately, there are other ways to get in the Fest spirit this year.
Funk Turry Funk just released the compilation Stoked For the Fest Vol. 1, which features tons of Fest bands covering others who have played The Fest throughout its history. That includes Typesetter covering Kali Masi, Days N Daze covering Andrew Paley, Catbite covering Kill Lincoln, Mikey Erg covering Kepi Ghoulie, Answering Machine covering Dog Party, Late Bloomer covering Gorilla Biscuits, Lost In Society covering The Ergs!, DFMK covering Radon, Andrew Paley covering Beach Slang, and much more.
