Hey Festies, got extra cashola? Need to exercise those slam-dancing muscles before Total Fest? Then y'all should totally check out the first-ever Richard Dreyfest, an all-ages shindig happening down in the Magic City Aug. 2 and 3. Venues include the Yellowstone Valley Brewing Col, Yellowstone Art Museum and Harper and Madison. Tickets are a whole ginormous $6 per day, or $10 for the two-day pass.
Bands include such notables as Friends of Cesar Romero, Mr. Dad, Noise Noise Noise, Mr. Dead, Shramana, No Cigar, Shramana, Part Time Ninjas and Duffy and the Beer Slayers. Who knows, maybe even Richard Dreyfuss will show up. Go check out the blog: It features goofy interviews with a bunch of the bands. Or listen and download free Bandcamp samplers of the artists.
