Way back when the Aquabear was just a baby bear cub… one of the first folks we ended up working with and meeting in this crazy world of Ohio music was Joel Archibald (at the time of Lemon House Collective, The Husher, and a whole bunch of other things). Like minded people just end up finding each other right? Joel is still doing incredibly sweet stuff and has been involved with the happenings at Dude Locker (a wearhouse/work space in Columbus) since in started back in ’09 (along with Lo-Pan’s Jesse Bartz and Skot Thompson who are also pretty awesome dudes as well) and is helping to put on the 4th installment of a really badass lineup of music at a warehouse in Columbus. Dude Locker 4 takes place this Saturday, October 20 at 527 East Hudson Street in Columbus, Ohio. Tons of bands, a skate park, awesome food, record swap, vendors, and more. $5 donation for traveling bands and its BYOB. Some of the Aquabear’s favorite acts are slated to play starting at 2pm (in reverse order) with a new one every half hour:
Battle Axe, Keelhaul, Lo-Pan, Rebreathers, Bastards, HeevaHava, Hookers Made Out Of Cocaine, Sistered, Nervosas, Horseburner, Before The Eyewall, Neon Warship, Bridesmaid, October, Aspen (ck), John Lancaster, Red Sun, Ampline, VES, The Unclean, SRVVLST.
Go support good stuff and see alot of great bands, and you can attend and share on Facebook too.
