Each year the Slabtown Bender has grown in size, so it's no surprise year number five will be their biggest yet. The 2011 event will run from February 4-6 and feature the badass slogan of "Three Days to Kill!." Here's a sneak peek at the killer talent that will be taking the stage:
Holly Golightly / The Paul Collins Beat / Head / Nobunny / Hank IV / The Royal Baths / Unnecessary Helpers / James Arthur's Manhunt / Rantouls / The Wrong Words / Apache / The Blind Shake / Dreamdate / Spencey Dude & the Doodles / Chemicals / Liquorball / Flash Flood & the Dikes / Bad Trips / Knifey Spoony / Summer Twins / Uzi Rash / The Primitive Hearts / The Courtney Crusher Band
That's a great looking lineup—despite how much I loathe Hank IV—since anytime you get Golightly and the Paul Collins Beat on the same bill, good things happen. We'll have more information on the festival in the coming weeks, including the full lineup and ticketing news.
