Exactly a month ago we brought you word of the Harvest
Records (well-regarded Asheville, NC-based indie record store) 5th anniversary
bash they’re dubbing “Transfigurations”: a 3-day music festival featuring Akron/Family
(pictured), Bonnie Prince Billy, The Books, Budos Band, Circulatory System,
Mount Eerie, Espers, War on Drugs, Brightblack Morning Light, Kurt Vile, Ice
Cream, Jonathan Kane, Coathangers, Villages, and Steve Gunn.

 

It takes place August 13, 14 and 15 and you can get the full
details (ticketing, schedules, etc.) at the Harvest Records website,
and check back often for updates as there have been several, since the initial
announcement was made.

 

To wit:

 

-the label/field recording panel discussion set for Aug. 15
has added Hisham Mayet of the Sublime Frequencies label;

-passes at the early bird rate are all gone (dang!);

-Floating Action has been added to the Kurt Vile/Coathangers
bill on the 13th

It all promises to be one of the summer’s unparalleled
delights. Check out the shows, and be there or be square.
