Arts and music rag 1.21 Gigawatts has announced the lineup for its annual music fest, going down July 24 to 26 at The Wick, The Well and the soon-to-open Our Wicked Lady. This year’s headliners are Atlanta punkers Black Lips, chip-tune wackos Anamanaguchi, and Chicago-area longtimers Braid. But there are a slew of other bands worth catching, including perennial festival favorites Ava Luna and other B+B picks like Lodro, Hondruas, Shark? and more. Tickets ($30 or $60 depending whether you’re doing one day or all three) go on pre-sale today at noon (password is savetheclocktower) and then officially go on sale Friday. Here’s the initial lineup.
