Brand new from the minds behind Midpoint Music Festival this weekend is the Bunbury Music Festival Headlined by Jane's Addiction, Weezer and Death Cab for Cutie, this festival already sounds pretty neat to us. But combine those headliners with the reasonable day pass prices ($46 a day, $93 for all three days, easily the cheapest of the four regional festivals happening this weekend) and the three Indianapolis-based bands performing each day? We're in!
You can see locals Hotfox, Margot and the Nuclear So and So's and She Does Is Magic at the fest, as well as surging national artists like The Gaslight Anthem, Airborne Toxic Event, Guided By Voices and more. Kids under 10 are free if accompanied by an adult ticket holder.
I'll be back on Monday with photos and video from the festival. Until then, check out Listen Closely, a new project from Bloomington Area Music trying to round up all of the music makers in Bloomington.
