High 90s on Saturday
It won’t be the first year I’ve thought — maybe they should just call it HotFest. But last night, despite yesterday’s hotness, there was a nice little breeze and it was downright comfortable. I’m not sure what triggered it exactly, but I had a flashback moment, standing outside Little Kings, watching Supercluster play. It was to a party I went to in an old warehouse...
Creepy are playing an awesome couple of songs — another band I hadn’t seen, and their myspace song posts def don’t do them justice live.

Bands will take the stage from 1 to 5:30 p.m. at Little Kings on Saturday, in a daytime affair in the vein of the stuff...
