Berea Fest Trailer from Jamtron on Vimeo.

roomies put on this little DIY music fete once a year in Berea, Ohio called....Berea Fest. I think because they get a package deal on Browns training camp tix or something. It's happening on the 17th & 18th of July this year, the fourth year of its existence... a picture of me at the first:

Be apprised that Amelia is playing. That's great. However, the whole
thing is hosted at a church due to a lack of accommodating spaces in
Berea so I'm going to have a lot of Grove City street punk flashbacks
and nervous sweats that I'd rather leave in a deep recess of
my unconscious.
Other anxieties: having to play out of a bass amp and
being surrounded by people I know without really wanting to talk
to any of them.
It should be fun though. And our tape split with Pheramones is
coming out then too.

Notice also that Max Levine Ensemble is playing. Could we see a
rehash of this insubordination hot mess?????

AUSSI: There is a blurb on this blog about my show at ROY.
It's the only thing I've seen where someone has written something
other than promo material for it. "High Street Art Blog."

Choice snippet: "He displayed posters and flyers for local punk bands
that played in various private house parties. It takes a real scenester
to know any of these bands..."
Me, a real grownup scenester... I feel accomplished.

THIS JUST IN: Libby Zay blogs on Bust.com about Berea Fest.

And don't forget. July 12th = 15 Bands at the 15th House.
