This might make for a nice road trip in early March. Harvest of Hope, a non-profit organization that provides financial, educational, and service oriented aid to migrant farm workers all over the country, has organized a three-day alternative music festival on the St. John's County Fairgrounds, a short distance from St. Augustine, Fri.-Sun., March 6-8. The lineup is surprisingly strong and the price is right. ($19.50 for a day pass/$39.50 for a three-day pass).
Here's a partial list of confirmed acts:
Against Me!, Propagandhi, Girl Talk, The Bouncing Souls, Strike Anywhere, Smoke or Fire, Lucero, This Bike is a Pipe Bomb, Mute Math, Bomb the Music Industry, Tim Barry (AVAIL), Fake Problems, Grabass Charlestons, Ninja Gun, O Pioneers!, Whiskey & Co., Underground Railroad to Candyland, Bridge & Tunnel, Tim Version, Paul Baribeau, Young Livers, Brainworms, E.Y.C., Eric Ayotte, Ghost Mice, Virgins (FL), How Dare You, Landmines, Anchor Arms, Monikers, The Takers, Dirty Money, New Bruises, Austin Lucas, Josh Small, Cheap Girls, Failures Union, Hometeam, Tubers, Alligator, Ones to Blame, Averkiou, Hawks and Doves.
It doesn't appear as if a schedule of performers has been set as yet.
A thousand "primitive" campsites are available, and cost $29.50 for all three days.
