Two organizations that know how to throw a shindig are concert promoter Duck Club, the folks behind Treefort Music Fest, and Crooked Fence Brewing, purveyors of Little Bitch Otter Ale. It stands to reason if the two join forces, the result is going to be one helluva party. Well, they have and it probably will.
The first ever Summer Lawn Bash is an all-day, all-ages affair at Crooked Flats full of music (duh), beer (also duh) and food, as well as lawn games and wake-skating--think waterskiing meets skateboarding. Live music comes from Treefort alum Roadkill Ghost Choir (pictured above), described by DC's Eric Gilbert as "My Morning Jacket/Band of Horses meets grunge vibe." The Florida folk rockers appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman earlier this year, were at Bonnaroo last month and will be at Lollapalooza next month. RGC is joined by Utah rockers Desert Noises and local bands Hollow Wood, Virgil and Edmond Dantes. Tickets are a 10-spot and are available at theduckclub.com, where you can listen to tunes from all of the bands, too.
