Fuck yeah!


This year the musical end of the Fest will be whittled down to a single day, rather than a full weekend, due to lack of funds - essentially, Fuck Yeah! Fest founder Sean Carlson racked up $15,000 worth of debt to bring the music to the kids, so to help him get out of his financial hole, not to mention have a grand time, support the music!

It's quite a trendy fest this time, and this year won't offer Langhorne Slim or Pissed Jeans, nor a reunion of now-kaput Boston band the Explosion, but there's a bit left to be had. Mika Miko alone is worth the entry fee!
