Bitter Fest 2016

Date of Show: 
Saturday, January 30, 2016

Bitter Fest is a benefit show that Heavy Hand and Evelyn’s bar put together annually to raise money for a worthy cause. Last year we raised a good amount of money for the HOPE Animal Shelter and this year we intend to help fund the Unintimidated: Wisconsin Musicians Against Scott Walker project. The Unintimidated project is a zine/cd/dvd that will be released in 2016 which features roughly 20 bands that wrote and recorded anti-Scott Walker protest songs. The Unintimidated project is also a benefit organization that intends to donate all proceeds to Planned Parenthood and a local food bank for needy families.

South Bend, Indiana w/ Many Bands...

Friday, May 15, 2015
Venue: 
McCormick's Coney Island
Location: 
South Bend, Indiana

After an excursion to the Kalamazoo 10 Theater to catch the Mad Max: Fury Road Matinee, we headed down to South Bend. Oh look, another brew pub:

Brew Werks

It was prom night in South Bend. Unfortunately, none of the attendees strolled into McCormick's for the show. Probably due to a lack of EDM.

The evening opened with The Rutabega:

Then us, Knife and Heavy Hand played. The evening ended in a whirlwind of reverb, sweat, and fire in the form of Daikaiju:
