Hey, I know a bunch of Blabbers either came to last year's 20Fest or played in it, so this seems like an ideal place for a rolling MetroFest 2012 thread. I'll keep it updated as we have more details. Feel free to ask questions, lobby for bands, complain, or otherwise participate.
Here are the details so far: A local music festival to celebrate Meto Pulse's 21st anniversary and raise money for the Joy of Music School, which provides free music lessons to disadvantaged children. It's scheduled for Friday, Sept. 28. We've got nine venues—90 Proof, Bistro at the Bijou, Boyd's Jig & Reel, Knoxville Visitors Center, Latitude 35, Pilot Light, Preservation Pub and its annex a couple of doors down, and the Square Room—and so far, 20+ bands. Those are:
Kevin Abernathy Band
Big Country's Empty Bottle
Four Leaf Peat
Itchy and the Hater Tots
The Johnson Swingtet
Tim Lee 3
Jack Rentfro and the Apocalypso Quartet
Texas Tony and the Tornadoes
And, of course, thanks to our sponsors: Lagunitas Brewing Co., WUTK 90.3 FM, the Joy of Music School, WDVX 89.9 FM, and Visit Knoxville.
