Deer Tick

The organizers of the Restoration Festival announced last night that they've confirmed Deer Tick and Titus Andronicus for this year's lineup.

Those two acts join The Music Tapes and A Hawk and a Hacksaw as headliners. The lineup also includes a great group of locals, including Sgt Dunbar and the Hobo Banned, The Red Lions, Matthew Carefully, We Are Jeneric, Scientific Maps, Aficionado, The Stompin Jug Ramblers, Swamp Baby, Atla Mira, and Slender Shoulders.

Rest Fest is August 27 and 28 at St. Joseph's in Albany. Early bird tickets are $20 -- that gets you into both days.

After the jump, a quick video sampler of the national acts lined up for the festival.

Yep, AOA is a media sponsor of Rest Fest. Happily.

Have they published a list of artists by date and time? I poked around the festival's web site but didn't see it.

I have spoken to the restfest organizers about lineup. I was told it should be coming shortly after a few logistical points are finalized.

Didn't this exact same clique of local bands play at this last year?

This is gonna be fun!

Titus Andronicus! Very nice!

Man, the dude in the Tudo Bem shirt looks really unhappy... like he may actually be suffering from a deer tick bite.

We ended up going with Thirsty Owl (Thanks, Christina!). In addition to being in a nice, central location (and in a really beautiful building), their pricing, responsiveness, and flexibility sold us!
