Benefit for upcoming Treasure Fest tomorrow at Milestone

The second annual Treasure Fest takes place May 18 and 19 at eight venues in the Plaza-Midwood neighborhood. The festival boasts a whopping 60-plus acts. With two-night passes at just $25 each festival organizers and local bands are throwing a benefit concert Friday, April 27, to help offset costs and pay bands.

Charlotte bands One Another, Pullman Strike (which includes festival creator Joshua Robbins), Moenda, Meat Group, and AM/FMs play the Tuckaseegee Road venue tomorrow. Robbins says the eclectic lineup which covers roots rock to garage to experimental, is intended to reflect the wide spectrum of genres that Treasure Fest covers. Tickets for the benefit are $8-$10. 8 p.m.

Treasure Fest's lineup includes the Emotron, My Captain, Red Collar, Naked Gods, 1994!, Appalucia, 2013 Wolves, Old Flings, Alex Kastanas, Blossoms, Chemical Peel, Temperance League, Hungry Girl, Secret Hospital, Towering Pyre, Little Bull Lee, Jr. Astronomers, Sinners and Saints, and many others. The full lineup and ticket and venue information can be found here. Bands play Plaza-Midwood venues that are all within walking distance of each other. These include Twenty-Two, Snug Harbor, Common Market, The Thirty Beaver, Lunchbox Records, Studio 1212, Kickstand, and Thomas St. Tavern.

If you don't want to spring for a two-night ticket, venues will also be charging at the door. Prices range from $5 to $10 per venue per night. Some venues are by donation. Times vary (see schedule here), but music starts at 5 p.m. Friday and 4 p.m. Saturday. So you could spend all evening bouncing back and forth between spots getting a taste of numerous local artists and many national and regional ones as well as experience how varied neighborhood nightlife in P-M can be from the stylish gallery space of Twenty-Two to the Beaver's down home honky-tonk atmosphere.
