Charlotte's Treasure Fest announces initial lineup

The second annual Treasure Fest, a two-day festival featuring independent and underground local and national artists at multiple Plaza-Midwood venues May 18 and 19, announced its partial lineup this week. Acts include Algernon Cadwallader, Leather, and Restorations from Pennsylvania, Georgia's Emotron and Wymyns Prysyn (who gets my vote for best band name), New Jersey's Black Wine, Rhode Island's Roz Raskin & the Rice Cakes (pictured bottom), Richmond's Worn in Red and Sundials, and Napalm Raid from Nova Scotia. The list of North Carolina-based artists include Charlotte's Young and In the Way, Andy the Door Bum, One Another, No Power, Junior Astronomers, Old Milwaukee (pictured top) and Pullman Strike as well as Raleigh bands Red Collar and Double Negative, Wilmington's No Tomorrow, Boone's Naked Gods, and Museum Mouth from Southport. More acts are being booked and organizers estimate the final number will include 50 performers.

The eclectic bill covers metal, punk, hardcore, indie-rock, Americana and and acoustic music. Venues include Snug Harbor, The Thirsty Beaver, Studio 1212, Lunchbox Records, and Common Market, which are all within walking distance of one another. A $25 ticket covers admission to all venues for both nights.
