Mock the Garden will again bring a charitable punk marathon to Memory Lanes.
Details for the third annual free event, which this year is subtitled "A Mature Music Festival For Adults," were announced Tuesday. The August 29 underground music blowout will feature 34 punk/hardcore/noise/DIY bands performing 10-minute sets over three stages at the Minneapolis bowling alley.
"It is sort of in Jaime Carrera's honor," Ailes writes of this year's Mock the Garden. "I'm also trying to get a bunch of busts made of him to scatter around the city, but we'll see if I can stop wandering around the city and mumbling obscenities to myself for long enough to make that actually happen."
Carrera, a passionate, boisterous, creative, and hilarious Twin Cities performer/artist, died in March.
Proceeds from Mock the Garden will likely go to an organization that works with undocumented immigrants, organizers report.
The entire lineup is posted below. "I'll figure out the schedule whenever I fuckin' feel like it," Ailes notes.
