Indianapolis post-rock festival Post. Festival has announced its 2022 dates and lineup. As always, Post. Festival seeks to bring together both musicians and fans of post-adjacent genres “without the aid of commercial status.” This year’s line-up includes: Boris, Pelican, Nothing, Pianos Become the Teeth, Junius, Arms and Sleepers, Coastlands, I Hear Sirens, Facs, Glassing, Pillars, Fayle, Colin Phils, Glacier, Brave Arrows, Black Flak and The Nightmare Fighters, & Onus.
Sojourning to the Steel City, where the steel these days is mostly from the music, Descendants of Crom Festival enjoyed a second annual event recently and Ghost Cult was there. From the pre-fest gala and parking lot party (think of a modern “Heavy Metal Parking Lot” with stoner rock and doom fans), three nights of badassery at both Howlers and the Cattivo club, it was a rager. Shout out to the sponsors Blackseed Records and Riff Relevant among others. Highlights of the weekend included sets from Heavy Temple, Howling Giant, Doomstress, Come to Grief, Thunderbird Divine, Toke, Geezer, Duel, but really you can’t really go wrong with a deep lineup like this. We can’t wait for next year and round three! In the meantime, check out these photos by Dante Torrieri of Useless Rebel Imaging for Ghost Cult. Continue reading
