A Little VJ Set in Honor of this Weekend's 305 Fest

Read interview with 305 Fest organizer and Speedfreek's Roger Forbes 

305 FEST is rapidly gaining status across the land (and in the international underground) as the hallmark festival of all things heavy. With big thanks to the savvy promoters behind Speedfreek productions, this weekend's going down in the history books.

It's reminiscent of long-gone festivals like the Slap-a-Ham fest in California and the Twin Cities hardcore extravaganza that I believe was orchestrated by Profane Existence and Exteme Noise Records.

Not that Florida is short on massive punk rock gatherings, there's still the legendary No Idea gala known simply as "The Fest" which is always a good bet and not too far of a drive, but now... Now we can claim one of our own.

Since I've been loosened on the short leash and we're actually encouraged to share our tastes here, why not post a little appetizer for this weekend's musical mayhem? That's right, it's VJ time!


Iron Lung - "Cancer"
Iron Lung hail from Seattle and this two-piece, powerfully violent outfit does not want to help you breathe.


Failure Face - "Human Cancer"
All I can say is that Bob Suren is the fucking man and the encyclopedia of Florida punk rock. Failure Face!


Teenage Softies - "Left and Waiting"
The Teenage Softies are out of Orlando, they bring the cute and most certainly not the mouse.
