This Weekend Is A Nutfarm/Everyday Magic

Holy mother of God, kittens. Every day this weekend=the most magical day of your life. I'll not waste your life jabbering away, as there is so much to communicate.


Legendary band and erstwhile ultimate fighters OXBOW possibly take down Machines With Magnets with Whore Paint and Tinsel Teeth. Known: Shit's gonna get covered in blood. Unknown: If said blood will be real or fake.

Festival de Bucket aka Rocktucket
Downtown Bucket, 250 Main St
Sliding $0-5

There's gonna be so much fist pumping and food trucks. Dan Deacon, Fang Island, Math the Band, Ed Shrader's Music Beat, In Heat, The Eyesores, Tig & Bean, The 'Mericans, and Double Decker Dance Band. Maybe a beer garden? Maybe we'll raffle off some sweet gear? Check it out.

Ripping times outside before the weather turns on us for good. Wolves In The Throne Room, Thou, & Worms in Women and Cattle. Do not miss.

Hey, quick aside, Pippi built a mosaic facade for the Dirt Palace, no joke, which is currently showing inside the Bell Gallery at Brown. Imagine one of her beautiful vulture prints, but as tall as a house and involving jewels. Peep the opening from 5:30-7:30 this Friday. Probably you can score some gallery dinner, know what I'm saying? Hey-ohhhhh!
