"The Precipice", will take place outside at Burlington Vermont's beautiful Intervale Center, and will feature over 50 different musical acts over the course of 3 days. The music will take place across 4 different stages, including one curated and run entirely by local promoter Angioplasty Media. Local lighting legend Jason "Liggy" Liggett will be lighting the entire site. There will be an 'under the stars' outdoor lounge designed by local artists Charybdis, and other unique activities all weekend. There will be lots of localvore food all around the grounds, much of the food having been grown right at the Intervale Farms, and Switchback beer will be flowing from the taps!
The music ranges from locally based powerhouses Heloise Williams, Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band,The Brett Hughes Honky Tonk Hoedown and Craig Mitchell & Motor City to the new wave, old thyme folk ofThe Vermont Joy Parade, and, in a more rock influenced sense, The Wee Folkestra. On the heavier rocking and raging side Rough Francis and The Gang Of Thieves will have you asking, "if I knew it was gonna be that kind of party"... And, on Sunday, Brazil's Luisa Maita (Best New Artist 2010, Brazilian Music Awards) brings her full band to close out the weekend with a set of Brazilian Pop crossed with Samba and Bossa Nova!
Full out future freakers Wave of the Future will have you bobbing and weaving to the beat, while Burlington's own hip-hop up-n-comers The Lynguistic Civilians, and Bless The Child will be representing their unique flavors of the genre. On the singer/songwriter side, Michael Chorney & Dollar General, Maryse Smith, Chris Dorman, Quiet Lion, and Francesca Blanchard will sweetly serenade you. Musical performance art & theatre combined will also be a piece of The Precipice puzzle with acts such as Los Huerfanos Putos Crios, Po' Tree Boo! K, Appalled Eagles, andThe Toes. Disco Phantom will perform with Heloise Williams for a special collaboration on Saturday night.
Angioplasty Media has put together a very diverse lineup for their stage including SnakeFoot + Principal Dean: FRNDS, CRINKLES, Shelly Shredder, MAUI, Parmaga, and others that fit the shape of what AG Media has become known for: cutting edge, honest fringe music.
We feel honored to be having our event at The Intervale Center, one of Vermont's most important hub's for locally grown food. The site is located convenient to downtown Burlington and a short 20 minute walk from the top of Church Street. Parking will be limited, so walking & biking are encouraged - we will have many bike racks for you to lock up your ride!

Press: From Seven Days, Vermont, Dan Bolles, 7/18/12: "Y'all ready for this? This weekend, more than 50 local bands will gather for the Precipice, a three-day music festival at the Intervale Center in Burlington that might be the largest, most comprehensive and diverse showcase of Vermont-made music the state has ever seen. On four separate stages, the fest will feature some of the best and brightest acts Vermont has to offer.
It all begins this Friday, July 20. Among the headliners are rising R&B phenoms Kat Wright & the Indomitable Soul Band, suspender fusionistas the Vermont Joy Parade, hip-hop heroes the Lynguistic Civilians and sons of Death, Rough Francis. That's in addition to Brett Hughes bringing the Honky Tonk Tuesday crew to the farm for an old-school country hoedown, the head-spinning experimental guitar shenanigans ofBob Wagner and Matt Hagen's Brain scapes, garage rock from the Toes, low-key indie fun from Hello Shark and something called Studio Chicken. No idea what that is, but I'm curious to find out.
Saturday, July 21, brings more than 30 acts. Some choice cuts include Prince-ly goodness from Craig Mitchell & Motor City, "Amerarcana" from Michael Chorney & Dollar General and indie-folk songstress Maryse Smith. The cool kids from Angioplasty Media have a stage to themselves on day two as well, offering some typically fascinating, under-the-radar music from the likes of CRINKLES, alt-country revivalists Shelly Shredder, ghost popsters Parmaga and much more.
Also of note: You may have heard rumors thatHeloise Williams has departed from the Savoir Faire. That's true. In a recent email, the disco-rock diva writes that she's "decided to take a break from being a band leader" and work as a solo act. For her Precipice set, she'll have backing from the omnipresent DJ Disco Phantom.
Things calm down on Sunday, July 22. The bulk of the slate is local singer-songwriters and folk-oriented acts including Kat Wright & Brett Hughes, Lowell Thompson, Chris Dorman, theAmida Bourbon Project's Aya Inoue,Francesca Blanchard, and Wren & Mary, among many others. Seems like a nice, relaxing way to soothe away the rock-and-roll hangover from the preceding nights, no?

From Seven Days, Vermont, Dan Bolles, 6/27/12: "Note to local musicians: Don't ever call me about work stuff on a Saturday afternoon. That is, unless it's for something really good.
This past Saturday, local scene booster and Radio Bean booking guru Joe Adler dialed me up and left an excited but vague message about "one of the biggest things to happen in local music in years." Lounging in my hammock, I thought about waiting until Monday to call back. But Joe is about as laid-back a dude as you'll ever meet, and the giddiness in his voice suggested this might be pretty important.
When I called him back, Joe filled me in on what might indeed be the biggest local-music event in memory: the Precipice.
What the hell is the Precipice? Glad you asked!
The Precipice is a three-day music festival happening across four stages at the Intervale in Burlington and featuring almost 50 local acts or locally tied, as in the case of Cumbancha Records' artist Luisa Maita. You read that correctly: 50 local acts. The fest runs Friday, July 20, through Sunday, July 22. Billed as "Dumploads of dirt, dancing and delight. Fortuitous and gratuitous farms, friends, 'fuck yeah' music, mojo and melons," the Precipice could be a watershed moment in the history of local music. Has there ever been an event of this size and scope? The lineup, which is still being ironed out, will include artists from every corner of the local scene, from headliners Heloise & the Savoir Faire, Kat Wright & the Indomitable Soul Band, the Vermont Joy Parade and theLynguistic Civilians, to the Jenke Records crew, to experimental music, to a stage entirely curated byAngioplasty Media. If the Precipice comes together as Joe Adler suggests, it will be the most comprehensive Vermont-music showcase ever. Glad I took that call.
About half of the schedule has been announced, with more info coming in the next week or so. Tickets go on sale this Thursday, June 28. Find out how to purchase tix on the Precipice Facebook page."
