If there’s one wonderful thing that local music lovers can count on loving about our soggy St. John’s springs, it’s the annual Lawnya Vawnya Festival. The festival grants us days and days of dandy music, fairs, panels, workshops and more, and it features hometown heroes, and local bands that got away, alongside bands you’ve only dreamed you’d see in this town. The fabulous folks at Lawnya Vawnya don’t want you to miss it, so here they are, giving you a shot at TWO FREE FESTIVAL PASSES! All you have to do to win is leave a comment below, telling us one act in particular that you can’t wait to see. It was a particularly nice touch, The Overcast thought, to yank The Burning Hell all the back here (from Europe) to play us a show. Tickets are available as of today at Fixed Coffee & Baking, a fine friend of the festival, and home to some of the festival’s finest fond LV memories. Like that Grey Kingdom pop-up show last year.
Here, sample some of these acts and take the Lawnya Vawnya tour, from punk to country, and hometown heroes to Polaris prize winners.
