On the episode, we play banger after banger from band playing Fest, including new jams from Hot Water Music, Iron Chic, the Lillingtons and many more. We also include classic tunes from Hum, Smoking Popes and Cadillac Blindside. This episode also features my conversation with Fest founder and organizer Tony Weinbender, where we talk about how Hurricane Irma impacted his planning process, how the stellar linup of bands playing this year came into place, what new and different things are occuring this year and what the future holds for Fest.
