Northside Festival Details Announced, Badges On Sale

Sunset Rubdown Bishop Allen Bill Callahan

The lineup for the First Annual Northside Festival was announced today and here’s what the press release said:

Oh, hey, look it’s Monday and it’s rainy and miserable outside. Which is why you’re seated comfortably in front of your computer looking for things to brighten your otherwise awful day. So the timing is perfect, it seems, for our first list of confirmed performers at this year’s Northside Festival. For those of you who will only continue reading if you can be guaranteed a certain level of awesomeness, Sunset Rubdown, Bishop Allen, The Dodos, Bill Callahan, Vivian Girls, The Van Pelt, Brightblack Morning Light, O’Death, Asobi Seksu, and John Vanderslice are all included.

A limited number of $45 badges are on sale right now (badge-holders must be 21 or older as of right now). If you’re at all interested in the lineup (which looks fine by me), you should probably pick one up, apparently they won’t be priced that low forever. Full list of bands after the jump.
