It’s now Totally the month of August, the greatest of months to be living in fair Missoula-town. College bros are seeping back into the city, the bars are slowly coming alive again, residents are tubing down the Clark Fork and Blackfoot like they mean business, and so many killer shows are cropping up, ready to come to climax in the middle of the month with none other than TOTAL FEST.
Now in its 11th year, Total Fest is the region’s premiere DIY music/arts festival. Past years have featured the likes of Oneida, Thrones, Big Business, The Men, Shannon & The Clams, among many others. It’s always a fantastic weekend of friends, food, and top serious weirdo/loud musics.
This year the Fest has expanded to include a new venue, an art installation at Zoo City Apparel, and a series of Total Fest-curated Thursday shows at the VFW. The best place to look out for more current updates would be the source: the one and only TOTAL (FEST) BLOG.
Make sure you don’t snooze…oh! We should probably mention the festival takes place during the 16-18th of August. That’s Thursday through Saturday. Every day includes a ton of bands and related happenings so yeah, just check out the lively Total Blog and get prepped for the reason for the season.
