2nd Annual Red Rocks Beer Festival: Punk in Drublic

Beer/Music Fests are all the rage these days, but we’ve had a gaping hole in that department over the last year or so here in the US ever since punk legend Fat Mike and his trailblazing Punk in Drublic Fest was banished after making insensitive comments following the Las Vegas mass shooting. But things have blown over as they seem to do over time and the Festival has made it’s triumphant return to the States. We sent Anarchopunk down to snap some shots when the tour rolled through Red Rocks Amphitheater just outside of Denver and he didn’t disappoint (anyone other than his wife). Check out his write up and a full gallery below!

Introducing the Crapsons’ CrapFest (UK): A Punk Rock All-Dayer of “Friends, Families, and Fellow Idiots”

We’re all about promoting the little guy with a grand plan here at DyingScene and following that train of thought, we though we’d share with you an event that caught our eye recently.

The hopefully ironically-titled CrapFest launches this year in the UK city of Liverpool. The event will take place at the city’s Phase One venue on 25th August and features an eclectic stack of bands looking to leave their stain on the once acclaimed European Capital of Culture. Whereas many all-dayers these days have a clear overarching theme, CrapFest is varied to say the least.

The brainchild of featured two piece Crapsons, Mike and Andy, the event is clearly looking to bring together a host of bands that don’t generally fit into a particular genre/scene; maybe they don’t want to fit with anything. Liverpool has a long history of promoting unique and interesting music and this will be no different.

Headlined by punk rockers Healthy Junkies and featuring the always-raucous Habits, Crapsons themelves, Salt The Snail, and Mr. Ted to name a few, the all-dayer has already sold out of its lower-priced early bird tickets but there are full price ones still available. If you’re keen to get involved in this diverse cluster-fuck of a show, don’t sleep on it!

You can find all ticket and other information for CrapFest here. You can also see the full lineup on the promotional poster below, as well as some words from the team behind the event.

Chicago’s T1 Fest to feature Smoking Popes, 88 Fingers Louie, Brendan Kelly, Lillingtons & more

The inaugural T1 Fest will take place on Friday, November 8th and Saturday, November 9th at The Forge in Joliet, IL. All proceeds from the shows will go to the JDRF, (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) to assist in their fight against type 1 diabetes. Organizer Jim Costanzo felt compelled to establish the event after his family was affected by the disease. He explained, “My nephew Joey was diagnosed at the age of three and like so many others, we had no understanding of it, but we quickly learned that this is a very serious illness.” He continued, “Working with the JDRF to learn what lied ahead for him, we saw so many families that were not able to handle the financial burden of providing care for their child. We have since made it a goal to raise as much money as possible to assist the JDRF in their mission to raise awareness and find a cure for type 1 diabetes.”

Costanzo cited his experiences growing up in Chicago’s punk scene as motivation for coordinating this fest. When reflecting on those times, he said “What we found was a community, a scene where even as teenagers we could make a difference. Whether it was playing shows against racism or gathering coats for the homeless, we saw that through music change was possible. One day we were discussing ideas on how we could do our part and we thought it would be great to put on a benefit show like back in the day.”

After setting his idea in motion, Costanzo was able to assemble a lineup that features numerous noteworthy acts. Friday night is headlined by Flatfoot 56 with support from Brendan Kelly, (Lawrence Arms/Wandering Birds) The Brokedowns, and Andrew Thomas. Saturday’s festivities begin at 3:30 PM, with the following bands playing: The Smoking Popes, The Lillingtons, 88 Fingers Louie, Dan Vapid & The Cheats, Vandoliers, Kali Masi, The Reaganomics, and Cap Gun Heroes. Tickets for each individual night are available, as well as weekend passes, and can be purchased here.
