Corn Times, Virtual Style
The damn pandemic hit, and music festivals were cancelled left and right…except, perhaps, for one. See that demonic creature peering round the corner, an ear of corn in his fanged jaws? It’s revved up and ready to go.
Austin Corn Lovers Fiesta, created by your favorite hooligans behind Saustex Records and ATX cowpunks Hickoids as an alternative to other festivals happening around this time of year, is making this year’s party an entirely virtual experience, though no less rowdy or rambunctious. Corn Lovers fans would expect no less.
‘Tis is a strange year, indeed, but the Fiesta has always been a wonderfully strange experience, so no worries there! The crazy celebrations stream over the weekend with sets from a location near Austin (my, how secretive…), and remote sets from Atlanta, New Orleans, New York, and Haltom City (near Dallas/Fort Worth). And welcome to another sick AF line-up, featuring We Are The Asteroid, The Beaumonts, Churchwood, DiNOLA, Hamell On Trial, Frontier Dan and the Hickoids and more.
