Fuzz Fest 4 Set for June 1-3 with Lo-Pan, BoneHawk, Child Bite, Cruthu and More

Posted in Whathaveyou on May 16th, 2017 by JJ Koczan

From June 1 through June 3, the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, Michigan, will play host to Fuzz Fest 4. It’s a massive all-day-three-day event with 11 bands playing each night over the course of the Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and it features names like Child BiteLo-PanBoneHawkThe Amino Acids, Wild SavagesLavamothCruthuWizard Union and many others. I’ll admit that I don’t know everyone listed below, but from those I do and the glances I’ve made, it seems like a diverse bill that’s as wide-ranging as it is packed. Sometimes it’s nice to go, set up shop in a venue for three days, and let a whole shitload of new music come your way. I guess that’s my motivation in posting the lineup here. Been a while since I did that kind of thing.

Full roster of acts follows here, in case you’d like to do some homework:

The Obelisk Presents: Burnin’ Turf II at Parisville Saloon, Ruth, MI, on June 3

Posted in The Obelisk Presents on February 13th, 2017 by JJ Koczan

I’m thrilled to count The Obelisk among the slew of sponsors for Burnin’ Turf II at Parisville Saloon in Ruth, Michigan, this June 3. After seeing the first installment come together last year and look like such a damn good time and catching wind of this year’s formidable lineup, it was a no-brainer to get involved in this small way immediately upon being asked, and between the chopper show, the van show, and the show-show itself, the event put together by the dudes from Bison Machine — who are also playing — looks like it’s going to be a killer party and something really special in a sense of more than just a show-up-and-stand-there-bands-changeover-gear kind of fest. All the better.

Ticket presale starts on April 20, but today marks the official unveiling of the lineup, which you can see in the announcement below, which the festival sent down the PR wire.

One more time, let me say out loud how much I appreciate being involved in this. Thanks to Anthony Franchina and all at work behind the scenes on making it happen.

Here goes:

BURNIN’ TURF II – June 3rd 2017 Parisville Saloon – Ruth, MI

“We wanna be free! We wanna be free to do what we wanna do. We wanna be free to ride. We wanna be free to ride our machines without being hassled by The Man! … And we wanna get loaded. And we wanna have a good time. And that’s what we are gonna do. We are gonna have a good time… We are gonna have a party.” -Russ Tamblyn (The Wild Angels)

The Gassers R/C, Parisville Saloon and Bison Machine want you to hop on your bike, pack up your van, grab your friends, grab your tent, leave everything else behind and head up to Parisville for one of the best parties of the year. Burnin’ Turf has returned and its bigger than ever. Seven bands, chopper games, raffles, prizes, drink until you can’t stand because no one needs to leave. Set up camp and live it up because you came to the right place. Everyone is here for the same reason.

Pre-sale goes live on April 20th 2017
