Artless Armchair 6

Our pals at Lesstalk Records are gearing up for the biggest Artless Armchair event yet!

The lineup includes Mushroom Family, Quiet Steps, Handsome, Crab Smasher, Michael Crafter, Pop Singles, TearJerker, Zounds, Omerta, Nice Guys, Edwin Montgomery, Tumors, Hira Hira, Penguins, To The North, The (Temperamental) Pocket, The Origami Girls + Craftanoon Club, The Brutal Poodles, Virginia Sook, Fairy Mountain, Nick Van Breda, Lobster Face, Jess Locke, Matt Spinelli, Little A, Simo Soo, and the long awaited return of Anal Discharge.

It’s all happening on the October 22 weekend, camping facilities will be available and tickets are $18.
