[COI alert: Slack Fest has paid me to help with press, but as you can tell by the line-up I'd be excited for and writing about Slack Fest were that not the case.]

Rock’n'Roll festivals and racetracks don’t have the best, um, track record.

But unlike Altamont, which Jerry Garcia described as “a nice day in hell,” Slack Fest promises to be 100% less stabby and it has all the makings for the party of the summer. With a forecast of 70 degrees and sunny, eight of the best local rock bands scheduled to take the flatbed truck stage, the promise of after-hours bonfire jams and a few kegs of Vitamin R — Slack Fest is worth taking the rock’n'roll on a race track risk. Featuring sets from local favorites The Moondoggies, The Maldives, My Goodness, Joseph Giant, Whalebones, Golden Blondes, Jack Wilson and a sure to be raucous sing along to American Girls, all in a way you’ve never seen them before (unless you caught The ‘Doggies and the ‘Dives at the last Slack Fest) — this is a day you’ll be spending all summer trying to remember.

Two lucky readers and their friends will be catching Slack Fest this Saturday for free. Just leave a comment and we’ll pick a lucky winner at noon on Thursday.

    good to see that don not “in charge”.. just sittin’ back and relaxing this time around.. with a couple o’ rainies and a hopefully a huuuuuuuuge smile on his rocknroll-loving mug.. cheers Mr. Slack. I miss the dog house (i think that’s what it was called)..but the tractor trailer flat bed should be cool.. this could happen on a giant lilly pad and it would still rock the casbah though.. with that lineup..yeeeeeeeeeeh haaaaaaaaa!!
