Scion Garage Fest in Lawrence

This kind of came out of nowhere a couple of weeks ago, but there will be a ton of great bands descending on Lawrence on Saturday, October 2nd for the Scion Garage Fest. The whole thing seems odd (you have to RSVP, print out an email, and pick up your ticket from various record stores around the Midwest), but the line-up is pretty amazing, so I won't complain too much.

Here's a few things you should know:

- Will call opens at 2:00 p.m.
- Doors open at 3:30 pm
- Music begins at 4:00 pm
- Jackpot Music Hall is 18+. The Bottleneck, Liberty Hall, and The Granada are All Ages.
- Rain or shine event
- Alcohol for sale for those 21 +
- Line-up subject to change
- Entry is not guaranteed

I personally recommend trying to catch The Oblivians, The Raveonettes, The Ponys, King Khan & The Shrines, Best Coast, Thee Oh Sees, Times New Viking, Happy Birthday, Digital Leather and locals Rooftop Vigilantes.

I'm not sure how many tickets they are giving away for this thing, so if you want to go I'd suggest getting on it early.
