State Journal-Register: “Dumb Fest 6 Kicks Off Friday”

Thank you to all of our beautiful media coverage in this city about Dumb Fest and everything we do. Today featured on the front of the A&E section of The State Journal-Register, local paper, is the headlines “Dumb Fest 6 Kicks Off Friday” and a photo of the band Earth Witch playing at the very first Dumb Fest which occurred at Black Sheep five years ago now. Stephen Spearie wrote the article and interviewed the band Telephone Junkies and festival organizer Brian Galecki. A snippet from the article:

That was the case with the Buffalo, New York-based band Radiation Risks, which plays a gritty, hard-driving brand of rock-infused hardcore punk. It played a Black Sheep show in March, but when Galecki showed them around Southtown, including neighboring Skank Skates, another venue for the festival, they confirmed for Dumb Fest nearly on the spot, he said.

Galecki said he pursued Matrix after a three-and-a-half minute demo tape showed up on the internet.
