A roundup of coverage of the annual punk rock festival held in Gainesville, Florida
Living in Minneapolis, I’ve seen a number of Soviettes shows on the local calendars over the past few years. With the band announcing a hiatus back in 2006, and a couple of reunions to celebrate the LP IV rarities compilation, I had long wondered what the band’s official status was. With some more shows scheduled around Fest 11, it seemed the perfect time to sit down with the band.

Fest 11 had a hell of a lot of big names: Propagandhi, Frank Turner, Titus Andronicus, Good Riddance, Dwarves. It’s tempting to push your way up front in the sweaty, spacious floor area of The Florida Theater, 8 Seconds, or The New Top Spot, but Fest isn’t just about those dozen plus bands. There are more than 300 groups that embark upon the college town every year, and 11(ish) venues that hold host to official shows. With so much in such a small space and time, there will always be missed bands, new discoveries, and amazing people ...
