hozac records announes full line-up for BLACKOUT FEST!!!!!

Hozac Records has just announced the full line-up for 2012's Blackout Fest, and well it's pretty much one of the best shows you'll get the chance to see all year long.  Mark your calendars, Blackout Fest will happen May 17th-20th at the Volcano Room and the Empty Bottle in Chicago.   Tickets are on sale now via ticketweb..... Grab a three day for $60 or a one day for $25...the low price and high quality of Blackout Fest far outweighs those other two more famous music festivals that take place in Chicago. So forget them, this is the weekend you ought to visit Chicago... 

This is some Garage / Punk / Psych / Noise mayhem you won't ever forget.  And this combination of bands will never assemble in the same place ever again.

hopefully roky's got his old band back, because he just toured Australia with his son's GODFUCKINGAWFUL band and it sucked more than the worst thing that's ever sucked.
