West Fest 2012 – initial lineup (Black Lips, Bad Veins, R Ring, Stagnant Pools & more)


West Fest 2012 is set to take place on July 7 & 8 on Chicago Ave. (between Damen Ave. and Wood St.). The street fest’s initial main stage lineup includes Mates of State, Black Lips, Bad Veins, He’s My Brother She’s My Sister, R. Ring, Bestfriends, Stagnant Pools, and more TBA. There will also be a DJ stage on each day featuring Flosstradamus, Sinden, Samone Roberts, and others. The current lineup can be found below.

As announced, Black Lips are also playing the Empty Bottle on July 6. Both K-Holes and Circles were recently added to the bill and tickets are not surprisingly sold-out. K-Holes released new record, Dismania, on May 1 via Hardly Art. Check out their video for the sax-filled album track “Window in the Wall” at the bottom of this post.
