On Friday and Saturday, more than three dozen bands will be playing the Live Loud N Local Back to School Jam at Sunshine Studios. Springs-area stalwarts like Aesthetic Delirium, From Slaves to Kings and Last Savior of God will be joined by out-of-town ringers like 12 Stones and iwrestledabearonce, and you can find the full lineup at sunshinestudioslive.com.
Also on Saturday, get ready for the third annual What's Left Fest (tinyurl.com/LeftFest), featuring an eclectic lineup of local bands ranging from the Conjugal Visits and Murder Hat to BullHead*ded and Milogic. Hosted by the politically inclined music zine of the same name, the event will also include the works of numerous local artists, including Heather Barlow and Phil Lear. The all-ages show gets under way at 1:15 at the DIY Event Center, which, if last June's Front Range PunkFest is any indicator, is a great place to kick out the decibels.
