This is not Hum.
  • This is not Hum.
The PRFBBQ, a huge underground music festival that was born years ago on the Electrical Audio message board, takes over the Lincoln Square pizzeria Borelli's this weekend, with over 40 bands playing inside, underneath, and on top of the restaurant. Most of the festival caters to the noisy punk that EA message boarders tend to make (Fake Limbs play on Fri 6/20 and Nonagon headline on Sun 6/22), but the highlight of the festival is on the night of Sat 6/21, when some excellent bands—ear-shattering locals Pinebender and Peoria space-rockers Hum, to name a couple—go all Let It Be and take to the roof of the building to play their sets. Another weird and wild event of note is Friday's headliner: a live-band karaoke tribute to the Touch and Go Records catalog. Who's going to sign up for the Butthole Surfers?

You can check out the festival's full, humongous lineup—which features tons more excellent bands such as Electric Hawk, Redgrave, and Dead Rider—after the jump.
