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 FIERY FURNACES
CAPTAIN OF INDUSTRY
THE TURNBULL AC'S
THE HIGH AND LOW
If they add Wussy, Twilight Singers or Staggering Statistics, I'm gonna be hard to keep away.
