Our friends over at VIA have finally announced the first wave of audio acts for this year’s festival, which will take place Oct. 1-6. The line-up is looks great so far and includes acts like Actress, KiNK, Juliana Barwick, and Sleep Experiments. See the full announcement below.
VIA also announced last week that 6119, their multipurpose venue in East Liberty (and home to many of our favorite concerts in the last year), will be closing at the end of the month due to new developments in the neighborhood. They’re looking for folks’ opinions on where to open a new space, so if you want your voice to be heard, be sure to take moment and fill out this survey: http://6119.wufoo.com/forms/z7x3p9/
