BRO FEST 2010
Curated by Parade of Flesh
What: BRO FEST 2010 will be a one-day festival featuring over 16 distinct newcomers and established touring acts from a variety of genres. “Bro Fest” is an alternate name to follow up last year’s inaugural South by South Flesh. SXSFlesh 2009 featured Young Widows (temporary residence), My Disco (Australia), Thee Oh Sees (in the red), Women (flemish eye), Abe Vigoda (post present medium), Pterodactyl (brah!), Ty Segall (goner), The Coathangers (suicide squeeze), Vampire Hands (various), Sleepy Sun (atp recordings), The Fresh & Onlys (woodsist), Howl (relapse) and Juarez (us two). Wavves and Trash Talk were unable to play due to excessive partying in Austin and horrendous traffic on I-35 North.
Why the name change? To limit any and all connections to SXSW, since they asked me to sign a Licensee Agreement last year. I guess my one day festival of bands really interfered with their reputation and namesake.

Onsale/Ticket Cost: tba/tba
Drive: Consider the traffic if you are coming from Austin. A normal drive from Austin to Dallas via I-35 North is 3 hrs. On this particular date, the exodus of people will cause traffic to be around a 5+ hour drive if you leave after 1PM from Austin. There are alternate routes that take just as long, but there won’t be any stop-and-go traffic (tends to be a more relaxing drive).
UPDATED 01/10: Snake Sustaine added.
