For cultured South Florida listeners seeking to hear things they’ve never heard before, who think that the area is inundated with only classic rock nostalgia tours and tribute acts paying homage to them, this “buzz” is for you.
The sixth installment of Bumblefest (www.Bumblefest.com), celebrating the 11th anniversary of Lake Clarke Shores-based promoter and publisher Steev Rullman’s free, independent PureHoney magazine, spreads throughout six different stages along the 500 block of Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach at 6 p.m. on Sept. 2 and 3.
Headliners include independent rock acts that split time between Los Angeles and Memphis (Spaceface), Tampa and Austin (The Stargazer Lilies), and Hallandale Beach and Brooklyn (Lumberob & Kramer), plus CumGirl8 (from Brooklyn), Immaterial Possession (Athens, Ga.), Gal Musette (San Clemente, Calif.), and Postface (Deerfield Beach).
At Subculture Alley, Alchemy, Lost Weekend, Hullabaloo, and on indoor and outdoor stages at Respectable Street, you can also see and hear Chlorinedream, Liquid Pennies, Daddy, Babe Honey, Brett Staska, DirtBike, Do Not Air, The Dreambows, Emily Blaylock, Kenny 5, Mila Degray, Mold!, Monster Teeth, MRENC, Nick County, Sagittarius Aquarius, Rick Moon, Rude Television, Paper Carcass, Violette Silhouette, Sandman Sleeps, Machine Gun Girl ft. Eden, The Basement Presents, World Renowned Elvis, Thank God It’s Drag, and Leah Wellbaum (Slothrust).
And if your response is that you’ve never heard, or heard of, any of these performers, you’re obviously missing the point. Tickets: $20-$30 at Bumblefest6.eventbrite.com.
