A farting contest it is not. But what else could Stank Fest be? Well, it’s “fierce, it’s fun, and it’s unnecessary” according to organizer Chris Kirby. Over the course of a two nights, some of the best string players the city has to offer will duel on stage with their sonic weapons in a no-holds-barred battle to the death. Rock guitars, acoustic guitars, guitars of the Spanish/jazz persuasion, and even some fierce (duelling!) banjo and dobro will be thrown in. Friday night is all-electric, while Saturday is all-acoustic. On your marks… Shred!
