CincyPunk Fest organizer Adam Rosing has a number of reasons for booking what has become one of the area’s most anticipated Punk-and-whatever events.
“I think the crowd will be pretty energized to see bands you can’t see every Friday night,” he says.
For CincyPunk Fest VIII, the audience will also have the opportunity to catch up with people they haven’t seen in years: Spodie, Pincushion and Saturday Supercade, which are all reuniting for their first shows in 10, 6 and 7 years, respectively.
Outside of the much-anticipated reunion shows, CincyPunk Fest VIII is shaping up to be another stellar 48 hours of Punk Rock goodness. In addition to the 36 bands over two nights at the Southgate House (Punk as well as Indie Rock, Hip Hop, out-of-towners We Are Hex from Indianapolis and former Cincinnati musician/comedian Matt Stanton), Rosing is most excited about this year’s silent auction, featuring gift certificates and other items donated by Shake It, Everybody’s, Cincinnati Ballet and Jeff Ruby’s restaurants; separate auctions will take place both nights. And this year’s proceeds will be donated to the Animal Adoption Foundation in Harrison, continuing the charity tradition started with CincyPunk Fest III.
