Preview:: Sappyfest 2010

It may sound a little hokey, but it’s also true - I don’t think we’ve ever heard anyone say a bad word about Sappyfest. I’m not sure if it’s the setting, the people who run & support the fest, or the combination of musicians that come together for it, but everyone we’ve talked to about it was pretty darn near over the moon about the whole thing. I’m pretty sure it’s a combination of those factors that make it such a great event, and I’m sure it’s gotten much bigger than the organizers ever would have imagined in its five years of existence.

 

So then, with Sappyfest the Fifth a little over a month away, it seems like the perfect time for our annual Sappy post with the huge block of hyperlinked bands, and so here it is:

 

$100 Al Tuck Apollo Ghosts Attack in Black BA Johnston BJ Snowden Baby Eagle Baird Brothers Braids By Divine Right Contrived Cat Pontoon Chad VanGaalen Construction & Destruction Corey Isenor Cousins Daniel, Fred & Julie Diamond Rings Dog Day Duzheknew Etaoin Shrdlu Felice Brothers Fred Squire Gentleman Reg Heavy Blinkers Hollerado Holy Fuck Horses It Kills Jim Guthrie John Wayne Cover Band Julie Doiron Kate Maki Katie Moore Long Long Long Lovesinger Lullabye Arkestra Metz Michelle McAdorey Moonsocket The News Old Man Luedecke P.S. I Love You The Reveries Richard Laviolette & The Oil Spills Rick White Rockets Red Glare The Sadies Shapes & Sizes Shotgun Jimmie Skeletones Four Snailhouse The Silt Steamboat William Kidman

 

That’s fairly impressive, no? Ticket info is here, so I’d recommend you get on it if you’re planning to go - or you could get a last minute entry into the contest we’re running for a pair of Sappy passes, certainly couldn’t hurt.

I think Will Kidman (Constantines) is occasionally Woolly Leaves… http://www.myspace.com/woollyleaves.
