Tune in for the Local Lunchbox segment on The Richard Nice Show today at 1 p.m. to get the lowdown on the lineup for the 3rd annual Riverwest Fest from Kelsey Kaufmann, RWF 3 organizer. Along with co-organizer Sean Heiser, the two have rounded up nine venues in the Riverwest neighborhood and 65 bands for this year’s two-day event. Groups hail from all over the city and nearby, ranging from stripped-down acoustic outfits to full-throttle rockers, including Fresh Cut Collective, Catacombz and Myles Coyne.
Kaufmann told The Shepherd Express in an earlier interview, ” We’re just keeping it fun, keeping it D.I.Y…Principally Sean and I are still interested in, and very much committed to, establishing all-ages spaces that are willing to host shows. Both of us grew up – with many of the bands playing this year’s festival – seeing all-ages shows, whether they were in basements or at venues like Mad Planet, which used to host all-ages concerts. For a lot of us, we owe our interest in music to those places.”
