Davila 666, Red Kross, Roky Erickson headline Chicago Blackout Festival
Here’s another Chicago festival to get excited about. HoZac Records will throw Chicago Blackout Festival at the Empty Bottle May 18-20. The fest features a lot of HoZac bands and three really great headliners, the garage rockers Davila 666, the legendary Red Kross and the even more legendary Roky Erickson. Check out HoZac’s site for a full lineup.
Blackout Festival was an annual event from 2001 to 2006 and was staged to highlight the yearly release of punk and sex zine Horizontal Action, which eventually folded. HoZac Records is the spawn of Horizontal Action and restarted the fest last year.
