Gainesville's annual punk-rock drenched weekend (with most other genres repped here and there as well) is coming up in just three weeks! This will be my third thefest, and while there aren't as many big names as in years past, I'm still looking forward to the venue-hoppin', music discoverin' weekend with a whole community of new drinking buddies.
