AmRep Bash 2013 initial lineup announced
As displayed by their last major bash (the 25th Anniversary) and occasional indoor show (The Melvins, Helmet, etc.), Amphetamine Reptile still has the power to bring some major associated acts to Grumpy’s downtown. The label posted on Facebook this afternoon with the initial lineup for this summer’s annual outdoor bash and it’s pretty exciting. Mudhoney and The Melvins will be joined by a pair of midwest punk legends playing some rare reunion shows, Milwaukee’s Die Kreuzen and Detroit’s hardcore pioneers Negative Approach with a promise of more bands to be added soon. While it falls on the same night as First Avenue’s yet to be announced outdoor festival and a solid 2nd night of Chicago’s Pitchfork Festival, this is one you shouldn’t really plan on missing. Tickets go on sale later this week.
