The final lineup for the 6th Annual Freakout Festival is here. This year, Shabazz Palaces, Deap Vally, All Them Witches, Night Beats, Joel Gion (of The Brian Jonestown Massacre), Sneaks, Death Valley Girls, Lisa Prank and The Grizzled Mighty are among the headliners that will play alongside loads of emerging local and national acts. Performing artists hail from as far away as the UK (Tempesst) and Mexico (Los Blenders, Los Mundos, Los Honey Rockets), and we've expanded this year's festival to include select all-ages shows and stages!
Participating venues include The Tractor Tavern, Salmon Bay Eagles Club, Sunset Tavern, Conor Byrne, Sonic Boom, Lagunitas Brewery, Caffe Umbria and CC Filson. We've teamed up with a wide variety of amazing curators from all over the west coast to host select stages, including KEXP's El Sonido, The Vera Project, KEXP's Street Sounds, Artist Home, SeaWitch (San Francisco) and XRAY FM (Portland). The festival will take place on November 16th and 17th and feature 50+ bands. Snag tickets now while you still can!
Prism Bitch started as a performance arts project in Albuquerque, NM, but rapidly volcanoed into total bandhood by 2016. Their first release "The Getaway," was self released in October of 2016. Since then, they have played Treefort Music Fest, toured the west coast, played tons of local shows and recorded an EP with the respected engineer, Toshi Kasai (Dave Matthews Band, Foo Fighters ) in Los Angeles.
The group has created a reputation for wild live performances, retaining their roots as a thrashing punk band, and has also developed a strong pop sensibility, often compared to The Pixies and the B-52's. They manage to represent a wide span of influences but could best be best described as soul punkers that want to rock n' roll no matter what.
Freakout is thrilled to have Prism Bitch In the family! Click the link below to watch the video for their single, "See You Cry."
