Restoration Festival 2012

the kamikaze hearts

You remember these guys...

A handful of important details are out about this year's Restoration Festival at St. Joseph's:

+ The music festival will be September 7-9. That's a week or two later than in previous years. But it sounds like a good change -- it's post-Labor Day, post all the college students coming back.

+ As the dates above indicate, the festival will now be three days long. In addition to the usual Saturday and Sunday, there will be a kickoff concert Friday night. And who might be the headliner for that...

+ The Kamikaze Hearts

The Hearts are back! And they're playing that Friday night show. From the press release:

The band will perform for the first time in nearly five years on September 7th with all five Oneida Road-era members present. The band will perform a 90 minute career-spanning retrospective featuring one-time only guests and surprise collaborations with all the charm, biting wit and charisma the band became known for during its 8 year active tenure.

Full press release post jump. It says more details about the festival -- including more headliners -- will be announced on the 7th of each month leading up to the fest.

Rest Fest is organized by the B3nson Collective. Last year's headliners included Deer Tick and Titus Andronicus. It also survived a tropical storm.

AOA is once again a sponsor of Rest Fest.

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
