VARIOUS | West Fest

comment

Dusty West, impresario of Eat Here Records, wants you to know that this year's theme of his eponymously named fourth-annual event, West Fest, is "Destroy All Scenes." While the local bands on the two-night line-up are aggressive, this festival is about making friends as it attempts to unite fans of a few specific genres to break down some musical barriers. Night one features grunge (Anchorage, Nebraska), straight-up rock (New City Slang), and punk (Sexy Teenagers, Envious Disguise, Black Ribbon). Night two presents a cross-section of stoner rock (Fox 45), metal (Order of the Dead, Abdicate), psychedelic rock (Comedown), and a little more grunge (Diluted). Check it out and stretch out of the normal comfort zone.

West Fest is Thursday, August 21, and Friday, August 22, at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 7:30 p.m. $8-$10. Bugjar.com; Facebook.com/EatHereRecords.
