Stoopfest!

stoopfest.jpg

This Saturday, April 23, in Lansing there’s a fantastic all day show called Stoopfest happening at six house venues on the lovely Eastside. A few years ago we at GTG tossed around the idea of trying to have a multi-venue house show weekend fest thing in Lansing but we never seriously pursued it, so it’s been really cool seeing a similar idea come to fruition completely independently of us – and it’ll also be cool to mostly just be spectators and get to take it all in! The Plurals close out things at Lamp House at 10 PM but throughout the day at all of the houses there’s tons of great music, comedy, and more happening. My biggest bummer of the day is that I won’t be able to get to see Lucy because I’ll be busy setting up and then playing at a different house during their set! The schedule is below and they also have a bandcamp page where people can sample the lineup. Can’t wait!
