TRKfest | Piedmont Biofuels | Clubs & Concerts | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: Sat., July 21, 3 p.m. 2012
Price: $10

The bill for Trekky Records' fifth annual holiday in the sun bounds between rootsy indie rock (see Trekky staples Joe Norkus and Butterflies), elastic alt-rock (Hammer No More The Fingers), Afro-pop (Diali Cissokho and Kairaba!) and quietly compelling Americana (Ryan Gustafson). With a stylistic range encompassing haunting acoustic songs to big bursts of electrified blues-punk around her set, Des Ark could go in any direction. TRKfest 2012 also boasts one-time-only collaborations by The Piedmont Family Reunion and Lost Skulls. The former finds Megafaun and Midtown Dickens interpreting each other's songs in a low-key, family-band arrangement. The latter is a Misfits tribute band helmed by Lost In The Trees' Ari Picker, which sounds incredibly promising. To read an interview with Picker about that choice, see Scan, the Independent Weekly's music blog. —Bryan C. Reed
