Cincinnati -- Indie Music Mecca?

Yeah, not likely, I know... But word comes this morning that the greatest radio station in the land -- WOXY.COM -- is sponsoring a 3-day indie rock festival which, for one weekend at least, might live up to those words.

On the weekend of June 23rd through June 25th, WOXY is sponsoring the Desdemona Festival in Cincinnati's Sawyer Point. Tickets are a ridiculously low $24 for a three-day pass [BUY TICKETS]. And, as you can see from this picture of Sawyer Point, when you're done at Desdemona on Saturday, you can walk right over to US Bank Arena to see Pearl Jam and Robert Pollard.

The incomplete lineup for the Desdemona Festival is:

THE WALKMEN
THE FIERY FURNACES
THE STILLS
ANNIE
ENON
HEARTLESS BASTARDS
RADIO 4
FORGET CASSETTES
ROGUE WAVE
SMALL SINS
APOLLO UP!
CAPTAIN OF INDUSTRY
RICHARD SWIFT
ACTRESS
COUSIN
THE TURNBULL AC'S
PAPER AIRPLANE
DIET AUDIO
THE HIGH AND LOW
WIL-O-EE

If they add Wussy, Twilight Singers or Staggering Statistics, I'm gonna be hard to keep away.
