The first edition of Livestock music, arts, culture, and event of communal celebration, presented by Chris Rockwell and Eric McGrath (and sponsored by SIMGE), is slated for May 10th at Legacy Ranch in Howell, NJ and this past weekend saw the unveiling of its finalized lineup for this inaugural event…and oh what wonders have been included.
Rockwell took to Facebook on Saturday to reveal that alongside he and his Stickball Social Club, the Livestock Fest will include such local luminaries as Accidental Seabirds, Harper’s Fellow, Moon Motel, The Battery Electric, Amy Malkoff & The Moonshines, Joe Miller & Kuf Knotz, and Bog Iron Bloom.
Also on the docket will be the Northern, NJ based Pop-Punk outfit Lovelectric, as well as the Moon Motel member and lauded songwriter Jim Mill, Bird Bath frontman John Gilman, The May Darlings (the recently formed collaborative project of Deirdre Forest and Michael Brett), and more.
Find the full lineup for Livestock Fest below and be sure to check out SIMGE’s year end lists for top Albums and EPs, because members of this bill can be found all over them…and you’ll be doing yourself a disservice not to be acquainted.
