Eighth Tanned Tin Festival to take place in Spain
09.28.2006 / 15:15
Are you upset that the music festival season is over? Are you tired of having to schlep yourself to Chicago all the time to attend them?
Are you looking for an excuse to go to Europe? Already going? Need plans to fill out your otherwise walking-filled days of backpacking from hostel to hostel? Want something that's not in your Lonely Planet guide that you can spend some hard earned Euros on?
Enough questions. The answer may just be The eighth Tanned Tin Festival, taking place in Castellon, Spain, being held in the Teatre Principal. According to the organizers, the driving idea behind this festival is to "provide a small appetizer of what we consider to be the most interesting things happening in the independent, international music scene," and to "bring innovative and exciting proposals to Spain or simply the most stunning and sincere projects that pop, rock, folk, electronic and its most unlikely combinations have to offer." Past favourites have included Animal Collective, the New Year, and Julie Doiron.
Sounds good. But I'm sure you want to know the lineup for this year. Here it some of it: Portastatic, Dakota Suite, The Montgolfier Brothers, Annelies Monsere, Manyfingers, Psychic Ills, Lisa Germano, I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness, Mouthus, Darren Hayman & Band, Apse, David Grubbs, Spires that in the Sunset Rise, Nick Castro, Six Organs of Admittance, The Secret Society, His Name is Alive, Carla Bozulich, and Hrsta.
If that's not enough, they've just announced the inclusion of Okkervil River, M. Ward, David Thomas Broughton, Matt Elliott, The Magik Markers, The One Ensemble of Daniel Padden and Radio Dept. into the lineup. Also, performances by local bands Litius and El Hijo + Grupo Salvaje will be performing covers of Johnny Cash tunes to celebrate the release of his autobiography.
If you go I'm jealous.
Tickets will be on sale starting October 4. You can find out how to go about getting them (without having to worry about speaking Spanish) at www.tannedtin.com and www.acuareladiscos.com.
