Chris Kirby’s Stank Fest ‘09

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!

The Fat Cat, $10 (In support of Chris Kirby’s upcoming CD, Vampire Hotel) Friday, Mar 27 & Saturday Mar 28 at 10:30pm)

    We admit, we didn’t quite know what was up with the smelly name, but according to this article about the show in The Muse, the name “Stank Fest” comes from the faces Kirby makes as he’s playing guitar. Heh.
