It’s the middle of the summer again and that means it’s time for another installment of the Summer Scum Noise Fest. The noise and power electronics oriented two day festival is in it’s third year and if the track record remains the same, things will be even better than the previous year.

This year boasts over 40 performers including special performances by Total Abuse and Rectal Hygienics, the first bands to play the fest. Other stand out acts include Pharmakon (who you may have seen open for Swans last year), Corporate Park, Ahlzdeveloper, Deterge, Hive Mind, and Taskmaster, but every performer has something intriguing to offer. There’s also a great showcasing of local talent including River OF Ichthyosis, VWLS, Oxygen Starvation, Partly Zombish, and Deceiver.

This year, Summer Scum will take place at The Foundry, located at 298 Northampton St., and will run from 4pm-1am today and 3pm-1am on Saturday. More information can be found here or in the photo above.

Perfectly described as “summer camp for weirdos,” the next two days are sure to offer plenty of interesting sets, fun times, and hearing loss. Entry is $20 per day, or $35 for the entire weekend.
