We are f’n excited for the 5th annual Waking Windows Festival. The festival takes over downtown Winooski Vt turning every (almost) storefront into a live music venue for 3 days. Featuring not only a ‘who’s who’ list of Vermont acts (Madaila, Maryse Smith, Heloise & the Savoire Faire, Barbacoa, Kelly Ravin, and many more) but an onslaught of independent rock/folk/noise/pop acts from across the land, Waking Windows is easily the best curated music festival we’ve got in Vermont. For a full listing of the acts playing check out www.WakingWindows.com.
Why are we so excited? WILLVERINE! Yes, Will’s new project has its live debut at the festival this year. Have you not heard Willverine yet? Why not? Just listen right here, right now, down below – you can thank us later.
