SOS Fest to host club shows with Grizzly Bear, the Shins, Ministry, more
Earlier this month, Sound on Sound Fest, which was gearing up for a second showing at Sherwood Forest Faire, was abruptly canceled when an investor pulled out.
When festival organizers announced the decision to cancel the festival, they promised to book as many SOS Fest artists as possible into clubs. On Monday, they released the grid for shows that will take place over the weekend of Nov. 10-12, when the festival was scheduled to take place.
Notable shows include Grizzly Bear at ACL Live, Cannibal Corpse at Mohawk and Washed Out at Emo’s on Friday, Nov. 10; The Story So Far and Yelle at the Mohawk, Japandroids at Emo’s, Noname at the Scoot Inn on Saturday; and Snow the Product at Empire and the Shins at Emo’s on Sunday.
Tickets will go on sale for fans who bought passes to SOS Fest Monday morning at 8 a.m. A general public onsale will begin on Wednesday at 8 a.m.
“Margin Walker is still working on rescheduling all artists from the festival and some of those will not happen until later in the year or even until 2018,” fest organizers said via press release Sunday night.
