Treasure Fest in Plaza Midwood tonight (5/18/2012)

Posted By on Fri, May 18, 2012 at 9:00 AM

TREASURE FEST With 64 bands spread across eight venues in two days, Treasure Fest's $25 weekend pass is a wicked good deal. And because we music writers love making lists, here are five standout acts among the huge spread of wicked, fringe-leaning music to hit town this weekend. The Emotron, a Milestone favorite, is a one-man spectacle of gross-out catharsis from McDonough, Ga. On the hardcore front, Asheville's Just Die! bring the basement with them, blasting through shout-along moshers in quick sets. Durham rambunctious politico-rockers Red Collar play Treasure Fest with a new record hot off the presses, and Museum Mouth does that thing pop-punk is supposed to do - the Southport band bases rollicking, short-form anthems squarely in teen-esque, small-town boredom. It wouldn't be a proper lineup without Charlotte mainstay Andy the Doorbum's shuffling troubadour punk. And the award for both best band name and best song name go to Wymyms Prysyn, reckless Atlanta garage punks with a track called "I Love Myself and Want to Live Forever." Wait, that's six. Oh, well. $25 weekend pass. Plaza Midwood.
