What the hell is this? Another one of those special events with the compilation CD featuring Madison's current hack musicians peforming songs that no one knows written by local artists you never heard of? Indeed! It's the third annual Local Love Fest.
For those who don't know or have forgotten, Local Love Fest is a special two day event where four current local bands (two each night) perform unique sets featuring cover songs written by other local bands. Each night also features a special reunion set from a retired local band who gets the urge to dust off their chops one more time. Each year we also put together a unique compilation CD that is made specifically for the fest. Each track is exclusively recorded for the event, and features a local band covering one of their favorite songs from another local band. These discs are an extremely limited release and not available anywhere except at the shows. They are given away to the first 100 paid admissions at each event.
The first night of LLF is Friday, February 15th at The Frequency:
Way Off The Horse (reunion)
Venus In Furs
The second night is Saturday, February 16th, also at The Frequency:
Sir! No Sir!
Both nights: 9pm door, $7.00 cover, 21 and up.
