It is August and that means that This Is My Fest 3 is only a little more than a month away! For those of you that have not heard of the This Is My Fest. The event is a weekend-long punk festival that will place in Oakland, California from September 15 – September 18, 2016 in different clubs all over the city.
So we invited members of bands who are playing the TIM Fest this year to create a playlists that consist only of songs by other bands playing the festival to help attendees get prepared for it. And if you can’t make it out to Oakland this year, you might just find your next favorite band!
Our next playlist comes from Sean Stepp of Civil War Rust, who released Help Wanted in late 2015 (vinyl available for purchase here). Here is what Sam had to say about This Is My Fest and the songs he chose:
The folks over at TIMFest were kind enough to have me do a list of the bands I’m excited to see at this years gathering of dirty punkers. I know… Punkers don’t say punkers! Don’t worry, it was just a sweet cultural reference. Scrolling through line up it was pretty hard to pick only 5 but with 3 sure picks and 2 coin tosses here you are. See you in the balconies!” – Sean
