Little 5 Fest has just added two hometown heavy hitters to its already massive lineup: Ponderosa and Reptar.
Criminal Records will host both bands, both of which are set for later than the Little Five Points record store is typically open. Psych-tinged, Southern-rock rooted Ponderosa will play at 9:30 p.m., then eclectic indie-pop act Reptar will take the stage at 10:30 p.m. after playing the CounterPoint Festival.
The fest announced the addition via Facebook yesterday, as if it weren’t a big deal. But it is. It definitely is. Particularly the special Reptar performance, as the band’s fan base saw a giant influx since releasing Body Faucet on Vagrant Records earlier this year.
Like the rest of the shindig, both shows are included with your all-access pass. For anyone skipping the fest (really?), Criminal Records will grant entry with the purchase of any Ponderosa or Reptar album.
