Celebrate 10 years of Two Piece Fest with The Afterglows, HIRS and more
How do you squeeze over twenty bands on a bill for a festival in the basement of the First Unitarian Church and have the show run smoothly? Two stages, ten years of experience, and just enough time between acts for the packed crowd to shuffle from one end of the room to the other. The folks behind Two Piece Fest have been doing this for a decade now, so when the annual event hits the Church on February 25th we can expect the usual jam-packed day of celebrating duos of all sounds and styles.
This year’s line-up features some familiar faces and some new acts. From this city we’ll hear a collaboration from Sam Cook-Parrot (Radiator Hospital) and Michael Cantor (The Goodbye Party) called The Afterglows, TPF stalwarts Peter & Craig, and melodic emo outfit Puke Party. On the heavier end there’s the blown-out punk of Ursula, Heavy Coughin out of Camden, and perennial grindcore favorites HIRS,
