larkfest 2011 music lineup composite

Mike Doughty, Diego Garcia, We are Jeneric

The Lark Street BID and WEXT announced the music lineup for this year's LarkFest today.

The headliner is Mike Doughty, the former frontman for Soul Coughing who's been a solo act for a bunch of years now. Also among the national acts: Diego Garcia, formerly of Elefant, now of his (apparently sexy) self. If you listen to EXT, you've probably heard his song "You Were Never There."

The lineup also includes some good locals. The full list is after the jump.

LarkFest is September 17.

yes! Doughty is one of my favourites to see live!

DOUGHTY!!!!

PHEEEEEnomenal. That means I get to see him three times this fall.

Wow this sounds ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Are they bringing back the side stage on Central in that little park? The Benson stage? It was so nice and not crowded and full of fun local music!

No Washington Avenue stage is likely.
Just 2 stages. We are Jeneric are playing, and I think all the local bands go on early too. So get up early for them and you don't have to crowd the out of towners if you choose.

Hopefully these projects will all be built. It's crazy how anti-development and NIMBYist some people are around here, and then they wonder why so many people leave. It's fine if they build a house or move in, but then they want to close the door to everyone else.
