Title: 2016 Indie Summer Series @ Fountain Square
Post by: Drjohnrock on April 01, 2016, 10:06:48 PM
I like how some bands don't adhere to this "let's keep the lineup secret until a certain date" mentality.  Reverend Horton Heat can't wait until then.  They'll be playing Fountain Square on Friday July 29, 2016.  I was skeptical when I saw this on pollstar, the same website that listed a Low show in January that didn't  happen.  But the band has it listed on their own website.  If I'm in town and it isn't pouring down rain, I'll be there.

Don't think so.  It should be out in the near future.

Looks like you heard correctly.  It's listed on their website.  That band reunites more often than some people change socks.  In any event, they are part of what is shaping up to be a very strong 2016 Indie Summer Series.

Who took over booking this year because that is an incredible lineup!

You speak the truth.  My only minor complaint is that Wussy isn't playing this year.  I figured they'd be a mainstay.

A fine lineup indeed.  I had an on-the-fence attitude about seeing Cloud Cult but being able to see them for free goes a long way toward dispelling my reservations.

coming up:

Friday, June 10, 2016   
10:00 – 11:00 The Joy Formidable
8:30 – 9:30 Drowners

I didn't realize that Drowners were on the bill as well. This is f**king awesome! Their new album "On Desire" comes out later this month (maybe they'll have it for sale already at this show?), but check out their s/t debut album from 2014 to get you in the mood.

Drowners were great at MidPoint a couple of years ago and saw Joy Formidable blow Columbus away earlier this year. Bring it!

Well, that was a major 'downer'. Drowners come on at 8:35 and play for exactly 30 minutes, that was it. Their sound has evolved significantly since the 1st album. Bye bye Strokes-wannabe, it's now more like "Editors-meet-White Lies".

Drowners were solid but yeah, set was too short. Gutted they didn't play "Pure Pleasure."

We got bored with Joy Formidable and f*cked off not long after their sound issues were resolved.

At least Drowners did play my favorite song (Long Hair).

With Drowners finished that early, and the Joy Formidable not scheduled to start until 10 pm, I lost all interest and left.

4 more days 'till "Uncle Bob" is in the house/on the square!!

What's the over/under for number of pints consumed by Uncle Bob during his set?
