Newsflash!: The Sweet Tea Pumpkin Pie Fest 2.0 & The Fuzzy Logic Showcase Therein

I hope none of you local types have made plans over Columbus Day weekend, because there is a musical event happening over that lovely long holiday weekend that you do not want to miss. October 8-9 will see the return of the Sweet Tea Pumpkin Pie (STPP) Fest, a free two-day musical festival featuring over 125 bands from both the DC environs and further afield. Oh, did you catch that free part?

Yours truly is not only a member of the festival committee, but the proud owner of a weekend-long showcase, to be held at The Islander (conveniently located near the one and only Ben's Chili Bowl!). I've booked in 25 wonderful, stupendous, glorious bands and singer-songwriters, and seeing them all in one place will be rather exciting. And FOR FREE. Really, kids, you are spoiled.
