FEST: Scumfest Returns on Sunday
Video by William Rella
Remember the ’80s?
Some of you longtime Local 518 music fans may recall Scumfest, a punk fest that took place back in 1982.
Well, even punks get nostalgic, and for the past couple of years some of those same musicians – as well as those inspired by them – got together for 21st century Scumfest.
Apparently, a great deal of fun was had by all, so they’re doin’ it again. Scumfest 2016 is slated for 12noon on Sunday (September 4) at 618 Humphrey Road in Duanesburg – about as far away from the once thriving downtown punk scene as you could possibly get. Admission is a $14 donation, which includes a catered meal.
Here’s the schedule of the bands slated to ratchet it up for Scumfest 2016:
