Activate...interlock. Dynatherms...connected. Megathrusters...are go son! With the help of a few select outsiders, Baltimore bands will form a powerfully (scented) Voltron-like indie cluster from July 17-20 for Wham City's Whartscape 2K8.
Initial lineup includes: Black Dice, Matmos Celebration, Beach House, Dan Deacon, Parts and Labor, Bird Names, Jana Hunter, The Death Set, The Mae Shi, Skate Dog (Gregg Gillis), Killer Whales, Double Dagger, Thank You, Ponytail, Cex, Teeth Mountain, WZT Hearts, Lexi Mountain Boys, Ecstatic Sunshine, Video Hippos, Leprechaun Catering, The Creepers and like 50 more TBA.
Side note, I'm renting my flat out that weeked for the very reasonable/attractive price of $2800, so if anyone from Rolling Stone, Dateline or 20/20 wants to come down, bring it. In addition to my company, amenities will include walking distance to most shenanigans and a chilled supply of purple stuff/Sunny D.
More updates soon - meantime see our massive six-part series of coverage from last year's Whartscape here.
