Wild Frontier Fest (9/10-9/11)

As we near the great ACL, people have festivals on the mind.  Here’s a great one that you should check out next Saturday (9/10) and Sunday (9/11) at Emo’s.  It’s called Wild Frontier Fest, and as the name suggests, it features bands that can be described as “wild” and as “frontier.”  Okay, so I guess “frontier” isn’t a way to describe bands, unless they’re comprised of lantern swingin’ wood choppin’ settlers…but Wild Frontier Fest features both the folky groups and the not so folky groups.  It’s about bringing in Austin’s diverse types of music, and it’s about showcasing local, regional and national acts.

A brand new 2 day festival (started in 2010) by a group called the Vagabond Collective, Wild Frontier Fest has San Diego surf-rockers WAVVES headlining, along with Austin’s own The Octopus Project and White Denim, and one group I’m super excited about: self described “anime rock” group Peelander Z (who I’ve had the pleasure of seeing in D.C. and they are nothing less than anime rock.  Check out how crazy their live set is:
