Summer Girlfriends kick off West Fest on Saturday


Locals Summer Girlfriends play the first set of the day (1PM) at West Fest on Saturday (7/7). Saturday’s lineup also inclues the Black Lips, Man or Astro-Man?, Stagnant Pools, and more. West Fest continues on Sunday with Mates of State, Crooked Fingers, Bad Veins, R Ring, and others. Admission is a suggested donation of $5.

Summer Girlfriends released their debut LP, Shockwaves, last month via Addenda Records. Take a listen to the album at the bottom of this post and while you’re down there, check out their music video for the title track.

Some of the artists playing West Fest also have shows at the Empty Bottle this weekend. Black Lips play a sold-out one tonight with K-Holes, Circles, and The Get Drunk DJs. Man or Astro-Man? play the venue tomorrow night with Dumpster Babies and Stagnant Pools (tickets). To finish off the West Fest weekend, Mates of State play the Bottle on Sunday after their festival set with Blonds and Tiny Fireflies (tickets).
