Staff Picks: Sarasvati

Heyo it’s Sara(svati)!

I handle pretty much all of the customer service side for FEST attendees (festsarasvati@gmail.com if you have a question!). I run registration with Steve Wozniak, handle all the hotels, ticketing, flea market, and other odd jobs here and there. I’ve been on the FEST crew for six years now and it really fuckin’ rocks to work with this team.

Here are some bands I can’t wait to see this year!

Against Me!

I love this band with all my heart and I can’t wait to rock out to TWO nights of AM! 

What: Playing “Searching For A Former Clarity” & “New Wave” full album sets
Which day: Friday
What time: 9:30pm – 11:00pm
Which venue: Bo Diddley Plaza

What: Playing “White Crosses” & “Transgender Dysphoria Blues” full album sets
Which day: Saturday
What time: 9:30pm – 11:00pm

War on Women

Have you seen WoW live before?! If not, you better put them into your schedule and be ready to have your face melted off.

Which day: Friday
What time: 11:30pm – 12:10am
Which venue: 8 Seconds

AJJ

The Bible 2 is one of my favorite albums. Listen to it- then watch them at FEST. If you’re one of those people who are mad about their band name being AJJ then please just don’t come.

Which day: Saturday
What time: 1:30pm – 2:30pm
Which venue: Bo Diddley Plaza

Masked Intruder

MI is my mom’s favorite band. The songs are fun and catchy and you don’t want to miss Officer Bradford taking off all his clothes too. 

Which day: Friday
What time: 5:30pm – 6:10pm
Which venue: Bo Diddley Plaza

Spraynard

Their last album cover has a fucking dog on it!!! It’s great, this band is great, and they’re closing out 8 Seconds on Saturday night of FEST!
