The Pier’s Halloween Show Locator!

Happy Halloween! If you do not have plans yet, you will now…The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator is back with this year’s Halloween edition and everything you need to know for a fun-filled weekend. Parties, bashes, festivals and costumes galore this weekend with Dirty Heads, Rome, Less Than Jake, The Green, Rise Against, Foo FightersSlightly Stoopid, and even Slayer for you headbangers.

FEST 13Parties abound this weekend for the Halloween festivities no matter what city you live in. But those in Central Florida should be stoked for Fest 13 taking place over the next three days throughout the city of Gainesville. It can be difficult to wrap your mind around The Fest at first but according to the official website, “THE FEST is an independent multiple-day, multiple-venue underground music festival held annually in Gainesville, FL.” But The Fest has much more this year including a flea market, art show, and the 20th Anniversary Tour of the live monster wrestlers, Kaiju Big Battel.

The Fest is huge! When all is said and done, 365 bands will have played at 12 venues this weekend in Gainesville between today and Sunday. Some proper show prep is important with such a massive lineup and The Fest has made it very easy. In addition to a detailed website, attendees can also use the Official Fest 13 Mobile Apps to supplement the festival experience. Both the site and apps provide a detailed venue list and lineup schedule to help decide whether to attend Less Than Jake, Descendents, Hot Water Music, or one of hundreds of other bands. But there’s more than just punk to choose from…

Hot Water Music fans were excited for the band reuniting in 2012 and probably equally as excited to hear Chuck Ragan will be keeping up his solo ventures. Chuck will also be performing this weekend with his other band, The Camaraderie featuring the amazing upright bassist Joe Ginsburg and impressive violinist John Gaunt. Festival-goers can also catch fellow Revival Tour artists and many other acoustic, folk, and alt-country sets including Tim Barry of Avail, Dave Hause of The Loved Ones, and Chris Cresswell of The Flatliners. Make sure to check the website and mobile apps to stream and download free music from many of this year’s bands; Fest Radio and the official Fest 13 Comps (see below) are available for streaming and download so attendees can get familiar with the bands before the show.

Remember to come by here every single Friday to see what shows are going on for the entire weekend. You may also view our built-in Show Locator, where you can search by artist & view all of their upcoming shows, with options to purchase tickets for select shows!
