For the $20 that will will go towards helping keep state parks open in California, audiences can see over 20 bands including the Black Lips, No Age, Mika Miko, Crystal Antlers, Peanut Butter Wolf, Avi Buffalo and many more. "That is 60 cents a band!!!!" organizers exclaimed in an e-mail today. Check out the full line up here, a schedule will be announced next week. The festival, scheduled for September 5th, will also include a kissing booth, taco eating contest, dance offs, a record fair, face painting and a 'missed connections' center.
