Freakin' Weekend V Has Begun; Here's Your Guide

Posted By on Thu, Mar 6, 2014 at 5:27 PM

Heyowza, cats and kittens, tonight's the night for the fifth installment of Freakin' Weekend to get underway. As a matter of fact, thanks to the Local Honey pop-up, it's already begun. If you saw last week's schedule announcement or Adam Gold's feature on Saturday headliners Natural Child, then you're probably already hip to the three-day festival curated by the bloggers/promoters/record label-ers over at Nashville's Dead. The fest has grown up quite a bit in its short life, starting with handful of locals throwing down at their houses and sprawling to one of the best multi-venue pre-SXSW parties you could ask for. As its regular participants have matured into national touring acts, they've attracted plenty of national acts from other local scenes, as well as a sponsor (Brooklyn Brewery Mash this year), and we couldn't be prouder. To help you orient yourself as you prepare to get your freak on, we've pulled together the pertinent details below.

The pop-up shop, where you can buy posters and records (including the new Fox Fun single) as well as catch sweet free shows on Friday and Saturday, is open from noon to five all three days at Local Honey (over in 12th South at 2009 Belmont Blvd). All of the other events are happening down on the Rock Block of Elliston Place. Three-day passes, a swell bargain at $40, are available at any of the ticket links below — just make sure to pick "3 Day Pass" at checkout.
