On the heels of some middling news about the future of live music in Lake Worth comes some of the best flippin' news about the future of live music in Lake Worth: ex-native son Kevin Barnes, who has gone on to indie-rock stardom with Of Montreal, is coming back to headline Lake Worth-It 2010 on August 7 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Details on the festival are scant so far, but LakeWorthIt.org seems to be the spot where more information will emerge.
As the above flier indicates, the lineup is a reminder of the diversity and density of Lake Worth's music scene. In addition to a "rare performance" by Kevin Barnes, the lineup includes John Ralston & Invisible Music, Angry Pudding, Bladesong, Black Finger, Black Weather Shaman, the Chill Pillars, the Dewars, Everymen, Fire Zuave, Guy Harvey, the Jameses, Jesse Baumann, Kill Now?!, Leading the Heros, the People Upstairs, the Ridicules, Spred the Dub, Wayside Flyer, Yellow #6, and Zombies Organize!!
Tickets for Lake Worth-It are only $20 in advance, $30 the day of show. Location and online ticket sales are still pending.
