While the focal point of GonzoFest is celebrating and discussing the work of Hunter S. Thompson, the festival always does a solid job of putting together a day full of music, as well. Below is the band schedule for the festival, which takes place on Saturday, April 14 at the Louisville Free Public Library.
Southern Sirens | 2 p.m.
A rootsy, pop-leaning Americana band, Southern Sirens have a bright and breezy, piano-driven sound.
Anemic Royalty | 3 p.m.
Anemic Royalty plays driving, straightforward rock, but they also have an angular, indie side, making them an anthemic band with range. Their recently-released record is Spotify generation rock and roll, made by a band that seems raised on the rock gods, but well informed about the entire tree of music launched by the electric guitar.
Jet Lawrence | 4 p.m.
Jet Lawrence has a grunge-leaning, no-frills style that tips its hat to classic rock, but filtered through that ‘90s distorted sound.
Ron Whitehead & The Storm Generation Band | 5 p.m.
Part sharp, freewheeling poetry, part chaotic, jazz-inspired rock, Ron Whitehead & The Storm Generation is a spoken word vehicle that twists Whitehead’s creative output in a slightly different direction.
Electric Garden | 6:20 p.m.
A six-piece psych-funk band, Electric Garden has prog and experimental elements that shine through their jam band-leaning sound that has an ethereal ’70s tilt.
