Fest 14

A few weeks ago, a couple of us tagged along with the Self Aware Records crew for our first journey to Fest in Gainesville, Florida. This event is truly unlike any other. Gainesville, home to University of Florida, is a typical college town that picks up and abandons itself at the end of every October for a big rivalry football game out of town. So, the weekend is always conveniently open for punks from all walks of life to descend upon the town.  For three days, the scene looks oddly similar to what typical college towns look like on game days, but with more tattoos, less fights, and better music. It is fun as fuck. These are some of the things we saw…
