LouFest 2013

I learned about LouFest at the beginning of May this year, almost by accident. Walk The Moon posted on their fb page that they were adding LouFest to their Summer/Fall schedule, and that post showed up on my newsfeed. I hadn’t heard of LouFest before so I quickly googled it and looked at the awesome lineup (much more impressive than the Wakarusa 2013 lineup ever was to me).

This is fourth year for the two-day festival taking place at Forest Park in St. Louis, Missouri on September 7-8. The lineup this year includes The Killers, Wilco, The National, Alabama Shakes, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Jim James, Local Natives, Fitz and the Tantrums, Trampled by Turtles, Walk the Moon, Ra Ra Riot, and The Lonely Biscuits (I looked up the Biscuits and they’re not what I expected! But that’s another post).

Of course, I got super excited the moment I saw The Killers, Alabama Shakes, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros in the same lineup. I immediately started looking for someone to go with me. I never thought of asking @DocMurda to come along, even though he’s one of the biggest fans of The Killers that I know, because… Las Vegas is pretty far from St. Louis. I thought of contacting local friends first. But I’m glad he was fb creeping at the time I was posting invites, because he quickly jumped at the opportunity to come along.

I can’t wait!
