Since 2005, Adam Bartlett of Gilead Media has been releasing some of the finest metal, hardcore, and more (including my favorite local release of last year, False’s untitled 12”). To celebrate the past six years and 40 releases, Gilead is putting on its first ever festival, bringing together bands from the Midwest and both coasts for a brutal two-day blowout in Oshkosh, WI. Highlights include Thou performing their LP Tyrant (also, possibly their last show in the Midwest), Providence duo The Body, Milwaukee’s Get Rad, and a reunion of sci-fi grind band A Scanner Darkly. There’s only 250 tickets available at a very reasonable $40 for the weekend or $23 a day. The lineup:

“We have reported deeply and written searchingly about these candidates, and the Kindle platform has created the opportunity to give readers something with the breadth of a political biography, but with digital immediacy,” said Newsweek Editor Jon Meacham. “This is a vote for the kind of content we produce well, and which means so much to readers.” “With Newsweek’s one-of-a-kind, timely biographies — Mr. Cool, Mr. Hot, The Insider, and The Outsider — Kindle customers are just a click and 60 seconds away from some of the most thought-provoking and informative perspectives on what may prove to be the most important election of our time,” said Ian Freed, Vice President, Amazon Kindle.
