Festival Crush: We Are Guest Talk, Free: $10 presented by The Whitehaus Family Record at the Cambridge YMCA Theater on Sunday

August 12, 2011

Another summer festival? Yer darn tootin’! This time, it’s the wacky gang from the Whitehaus. They’re bringing their attitude and can do spirit from their home base* in Jamaica Plain to the YMCA theater in Cambridge. It’s the third installment in their summer Weirdstock series, which gets bigger and bigger every year. This year’s schedule is jam packed with bands, some from Boston and some from faraway, exotic places with names like “Maine” and “Cinncinati.” Dubbed We are Guest Talk, Free: $10, scroll down for the lineup.

*it’s literally their home base, which is to say that they live there. It’s where they eat and sleep and shower and make art and help each other and play ball in the house even though mom always says not to and then the basketball bounces down the stairs and breaks the thing and all the other kids cover up for Peter so he can go on his camping trip. They’re a heartwarming bunch.

Here’s the lineup we promised:
Shane Myrbeck/Emily Shisko
Metal and Glass Ensemble
Peace, Loving
Alien Moon Partnership
Not Art
Pom Teddy
Melissa Huser
Baby Names
Hunnie Bunnies
The Debate
Guerilla Toss
