Superior St. Presents Electric City Rockfest This Friday & Saturday

As if providing the coolest environment in which to rock wasn't already enough, Superior St. Rehearsal Facility proves just how bad-ass and artist-friendly we are by sponsoring the mega-cool 5th Annual Electric City Rockfest, which takes place this Friday (June 10th) and Saturday (June 11th) at the Double Door.

Friday night's festivities will feature a headlining performance by New Bomb Turks, a band that has been blazing a righteous gunk punk path since their formation in 1990. During that time, they've released nine albums of high-octane, low-frills garage punk and solidified a reputation for stunning live shows.

While the band may have slowed the momentum of their early days - their last studio album was 2003's vitriolic masterpiece, Switchblade Tongues & Butterknife Brains, they haven't lost a step at all when it comes to onstage intensity.

Black Actress, Cool Devices, and The Mediums are opening. Tickets are $15 and showtime is 9PM.

On Saturday, night #2 of Rockfest, things get considerably darker and riffier as legendary UK outfit Orange Goblin bring their thundering metal assault to the Double Door in what is to be their final US show of the year.

While the band's last studio album came in 2007, their entire catalog was recently re-issued by Rise Above Records and they remain one of the most consistently amazing metal bands on the planet.

Opening bands Nachtmystium, Bible Of The Devil, Buried At Sea, and Zuul will provide ample riffage prior to OG hitting the stage and blowing the roof off.

Tickets are $20 at the door and showtime is 9PM.
