HoZac offered:

We said we wouldn’t do it again after five years of overindulgence, but the folks at the Empty Bottle twisted our arm and we figured we’d give it another shot, and what a shot it’s gonna be.

That’s right fine people of the Internet, HoZac Records was requested to curate the BLACKOUT Fest once again and since it had been five long years since the last one, we figured it was worth a shot. No more of the four-six day marathon standing/leaning/drinking/puking all in the same room monotony (where even your favorite bands on earth can sound bland), it’s now cooked down to just TWO DAYS of bands, which makes the whole “fest” experience so much more tolerable, and we know you’ll agree.
May 27-28th 2011 at Chicago’s most sophisticated ballroom, THE VELVET PERINEUM in Logan Square (capacity 500+).

Tickets for all portions of the festival are available here.

BLACKOUT Fest will highlight acts such as: Reading Rainbow, the People’s Temple, Nobunny, K-Holes, TV Ghost, Idle Times, Radar Eyes, Heavy Times (who just opened for Dirty Beaches), and Outer Minds.
