And while you’re at it, check out previous Fest sets from GILT, Bacchae, Signals Midwest, and Catbite who we were lucky enough to catch last year.

You know, we can’t help but notice there’s a healthy showing of bands performing this year who have come through the studio, so if you need something more to hold you over until October, why not check these sessions out?

And if you’re really jonesing for some Fest-adjacency, you can listen to any of these episodes featuring interviews with folks who’ll be playing Fest 20:
