STARLABFEST 2015 is this Saturday!

STARLABFEST 2015 is this Saturday!

It’s the end of the summer, and for us at Starlab, the end of summer means two things, and two things only: (1) it’s our last chance to get in our summer swim meets and (2) it’s time for STARLABFEST! (the 6th annual!). If you haven’t heard of it, it’s an all day outdoor rock-and/or-roll show happening this Saturday, August 22nd 12pm-9pm. As in years past, the event will feature two stages (the Narragansett Stage and the Safe Responsible Movers stage)  showcasing ten of the Boston areaʼs most exciting bands, including ZIP-TIE HANDCUFFS, THE NOVEL IDEAS, AMERICAN ECHOES, METH VALLEY, LUAU, ESH THE MONOLITH, BEACH TOYS, HALFSOUR, OLD SCHOOL GAME SHOW, and Ohio’s TWEENS! We’ll also have stand-up comedy from Sam Jay, Tim Hoffman, and Sam Ike!

Local vendors will be on site selling vintage clothing, records, and knick-knacks in a flea market curated by High Energy Vintage alongside upright arcade games from the BITFEST crew and an interactive performance from Old School Game Show. The festival will take place at 10 Poplar St., just outside of Union Square, the future home of the Somerville Arts Councilʼs ARTfarm project. FREE FOOD will be available on site from the Starlab Grill, and we’ll have delicious Naragansett beer for sale. The event costs $10 advance / $12 day of show, tickets available online from Brown Paper Tickets or at the following locations: Berkʼs Shoes, Allston Diner, or High Energy Vintage.

Please join us for this celebration of all things cool and local!
