Laura Stevenson and the Cans got The Fest 8 off to a rousing start for a lot of us on early Friday evening at Civic Media Center. "Mouthbreather" is a track from their new 7" for Mandible Records, Holy Ghost. Stream it at punknews.org/bands/laurastevenson
Sakes Alive!! were a late addition to The Fest 8, and proved their worthiness with a raucous set at the Rion Ballroom on Saturday night. The Rochester, NY outfit just released the Act II 7" via Cavity Records.
