The Freakout Festival, produced by Freakout Records, will take place on December 8 and 9 and features Seattle-based artists such as Spencer Moody (of The Murder City Devils), Smokey Brights, Erik Blood, MASZER, Maiah Manser, and Acid Tongue. Attendees will be able to enjoy the show at four different lively Capitol Hill venues: Chop Suey, Pony, Bar Sue, Lovecitylove.
Freakout Records launched in January and already expanded to New York. They currently have seven local artist groups signed and are determined to continue growing their label. A recent profile of Freakout by the Seattle Times commented on what the music festival means for Freakout Records:
“The festival marks the public debut of the Freakout label, which began in January and released its debut in July, a soundtrack to the movie “Alien” by the band Newaxeyes. Freakout has since put out EP’s by Acid Tongue (made up of two of Freakout’s founders, Cunningham and Keltner) and more notably “Hot Candy,” the latest full-length by Seattle rock darlings Smokey Brights.”
