It's that time of year again.  Lots of great music, film and skating to be had.  So get out and enjoy.

From what I understand, Living Colour is no longer part of the lineup.  But the bands that are playing are pretty amazing: Pure Hell (the first all-Black punk band); Saul Williams; Game Rebellion; Earl Greyhound, Tamar-kali; Apollo Heights; Janelle Monae; Chewing Pics; and a bunch more! More detailed info is available on the AP Festival page.

Some other bands performing:

The Objex

The Echo Jinx

The London Souls

Joya Bravo

John Forte

Tamar-Kali

Sabatta
