Brainwaves 2008

I had buckets of fun at the first Brainwaves festival in 2006, and Brainwashed is turning it up to 11 for the second festival on November 21-23..  Big name acts you may have heard of like Meat Beat Manifesto, Matmos, and Stars of the Lid, but the real cream of the crop may be the bands you may not have heard of yet (unless you read Brainwashed religiously).   Brainwaves is completely different from any festival I’ve ever attended, the Regent Theatre is a pretty intimate venue and the artists are often sprinkled throughout the venue (not squirreled away in some green room or hotel). 

The schedule was just posted, and at 79 bucks, the three-day pass is a bargain..   You can also buy tickets for the individual days, so if you really want to help one of the greatest independent music sites online (and a native Boston business), buy your tickets now!

  1. Nice! I didn’t realize they had done a festival in the past.

    I’m not sure how into dubstep you are, but you ought to check out DJ/Rupture – Uproot, I haven’t been able to stop listening to it since I picked it up a couple days ago. It’s not strictly dubstep, but it has a dub vibe to it, and is pretty hot. I think you’d be into it!
