A few months ago we cracked open a can of fuck yeah in announcing Awesome Day Fest, an annual DIY music festival held across multiple music venues and bars in Allston. “We thought peak awesome was finally reached [last year],” we wrote. “We were wrong.”
Since then, Awesome Day Fest has grown even larger, adding extra bands and stages to its initial lineup. So as it fast approaches with a kickoff party Friday night at O’Brien’s Pub and a full slate of shows on Saturday at the Model Cafe, Great Scott, Wonderbar, and O’Brien’s, we figured we were due for a proper update.
On tap this weekend are about two dozen bands and artists, a wrestling crew, a DJ or two, and a wide variety of sounds, from metal to electro-pop to singer-songwriters to Robby Roadsteamer. There are even two can’t miss indie rock reunions, as Codetta and Vic Firecracker return to the stage after several years away.
Truly something for everyone.
Check to the lineups and links below, and take note: a $20 pass, available at the participating venues (except the Model), gets you into everything. You like a side of everything with your awesome? Of course you do. Dive in.
