On this episode, I sit down with Caitlin and Jason, the founders of Punk the Burbs Fest at this year’s location, Basecamp in Lisle, IL. This annual all ages music festival held in the suburbs of Chicago is a great event and one Friskie Morris & Friends is proud to sponsor for the second year in a row.
We talk about how the organizers got into punk, things they learned from their inaugural fest, what to expect at this year’s fest, and how they are able to do it all with just two people. This year’s fest is Saturday, September 22nd at Basecamp in Lisle, IL. Tickets are still available.
1) The Queers – “Fuck The World” off their album Love Songs For The Retarded
2) Bumsy and the Moochers – “Walls” off their upcoming second full length album on Imminence Records
3) The Run Around – “American Dream” off their album Reckless Ones
4) The Bollweevils – “Bottomless Pit” off their album Stick Your Neck Out
