Greg Houston A comic dramatization of this weekend's festivities.
This Saturday and Sunday, September 6 and 7, more than 30 bands will perform in the basement of Empire Hall in south St. Louis for Pü Fest. The lineup, comprised of acts from all over the country, highlights the abrasive underbelly of American music in 2014.
Despite its tongue-in-cheek name, Pü Fest isn't meant to be a cynical jab at this weekend's mainstream-friendly LouFest. Local organizers Mike Herr, Luc Michalski and Patrick Boland only want to provide an alternative -- one with an intensely local component -- something LouFest is lacking, despite its name.
