For those punk fans wondering where their festival calling has been hiding, the fourth-annual Creepy Fest, presented by Sheer Terror Records from July 11-15, will satisfy that itch. The event is a composite of over thirty bands performing all over the city, from the Big Top to the Saturn Bar.
Performances include Crotchbreaker, Nassty Habits, The Sluts, Before I Hang, Hot Coke Sex, Electric Frankenstein and many more. Wednesday, July 11 there will be a $5 entry at the Big Top for a local film showing and live music by the Unnaturals. The other four nights will be all music-oriented and entry costs range from free to $10, with all seven Creepy Fest costing a total of $25.
Creepy Fest 2012 t-shirts will also be available at each of the venues, as well as band merchandise. Creepy Fest has no outside sponsors so they encourage everyone to support the bands and venues by purchasing merchandise and drinks.
