What Happened as a one day Show in 2011 has now been expanded into a four day Punk Rock Extravaganza that will hit four cities in three states over four days in mid-August. Dubbed The Upstart Fest this traveling act of dirty punk rock miscreants will begin their reign of terror on the good people of Brooklyn NY at The Knitting Factory on Thursday August 9th, then move on to conquer the El & Gee Club in New London CT. on Friday August 10th, followed by the winning of hearts and minds on Saturday August 11th in Poughkeepsie NY at the famous Chance Theatre, and then finally driving the last nail into the coffin of decency on Sunday August 12th at the fabulous Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park NJ.
Here are the first of many bands to be announced to this four day fest of punk madness: South Carolina’s Horror Ska/Punk Legends The Independents. Connecticut’s Most infamous Punx Two Fisted Law. and New Jerseys female fronted high energy indie Punks The Obvious. Please stay tuned for updates on the Northeast’s biggest and baddest Punk Rock party…don’t miss it!
