The Fest 8!

It's October again and while most of you are picking out your Halloween costumes and planning parties, No Idea Records has been organizing it's eighth annual Fest.  Every October independent bands from all over the world take over Gainesville, Florida venues for three drunken days of music and shenanigans.  Starting in 2005, The Fest has proven itself to be the "underground" concert series that every punk looks forward too.  Bands from all over America clear their calenders and book shows across the country ensuring that they end up in Gainsville for the Halloween weekend.  Some major acts that are performing this year include:  A Wilhelm Scream, Strike Anywhere, Less Than Jake, Dillenger Four, The Blacklist Royals, Chad Price, Jon Snodgrass, Off With Their Heads, Dead To Me, The Emotron, Ok Pilot, Grabass Charlestons, Chris Wollard and the Ship of Theives, The Swellers, The Flatliners, Banner Pilot, Dear Landlord, Young Livers, and Rehasher to just name a few.  For a full schedule check it out here.
