Tis the season, once again. The season for eye patches, rum drinks, and naughty jokes about what Captain Hook does with his infamous appendage. Thatâ€™s right folks, PIRATE FEST 2010 is almost upon us! As in previous years, this yearâ€™s one day festival is a daunting bill of ten big time local acts from a wide range of genres.
This yearâ€™s show is marked by the headlining appearance of Jacob and I. Columbiaâ€™s own Google success story is riding high in this new year bringing all of the instrumental goodness and fun spirit thatâ€˜s made them a fan favorite. Other top-tier performers include Athens, GA favorites, Venice is Sinking as well as Columbia post-punkers, Calculator.
Versus the Robot, Tunguska, Wicked Tim, You Me and Us, Dance Commander, Kill Anties, and We Sail at Dawn round out this yearâ€™s cast of pirate performers. From the list of varied talents, its easy to see that this yearâ€™s lineup has something for everyone. And as always, dressing as a buccaneer is certainly encouraged. Catch all of the festivities at the New Brookland Tavern on February 27th. Be there or be walking the plank. -Samantha Hoy
