Local Festival Targets All Senses
Our friends from the Slaughterhouse Gallery are expanding to new outlets, venues and formats. Think bigger and better. Anyone following the underground promoters may recall their event over the summer at Yes.Oui.Si.. This Saturday will bring the same great programming with an ambitious new leap in scale.
The first Kill Joy Festival will take place this Saturday in Central Square, Cambridge. Filling a variety of venues, the festival will feature a smorgasbord of local artists, performers, speakers, and others.
What can you expect from this day? Well, a little of everything. The fun starts at Rodney’s Bookstore with artist Sean Boyce, musician Caleb Groh, and author Gary Braver. That lineup doesn’t even exemplify how eccentric the festival gets as the next event at Life Alive Café features a tea tasting, a beekeeper, and urban composting, and, of course, there is plenty of music. T.T. the Bears will feature Sand Reckoner and Streight Angular as well Jon Palmer & The New Complainers, Birthdays, Comedian Colin Pugh, a film premier, and more!
For full details check out killjoyfest.com. The first two events are free but the but T.T. the Bears and Pandemonium books are $10 each or $15 for an all access wristband that also gets you access to exclusive acoustic performances by Streight Angular and Sand Reckoner. Sounds like a pretty good deal if you ask me.
