BRAIN Arts Org. Announces Indiegogo Fundraiser, Unveils Hassle Fest 7 Lineup

If you live in the Greater Boston area, you probably are well-acquainted with the three phenomena that are guaranteed to accompany the arrival of fall in New England: the annual migration of drunk college students, clogging the archaic transportation system, the reappearance of annoyingly-outspoken Patriots fans and Boston Hassle Fest. Yesterday, BRAIN Arts Org. unveiled their Indiegogo fundraiser campaign for this year's Hassle Fest, offering much-needed respite from "Free Brady" t-shirts lining the Boston city streets. This year's lineup boasts over 50 bands, with the likes of Pile, Downtown Boys, and Guerilla Toss serving as the welcoming committee for major headliners Screaming Females, Flipper (with David Yow) and Terrence Dixon. The Indiegogo campaign is the only way to secure advance tickets to any fest performance, so make sure to donate early and guarantee your presence at BRAIN Arts Org.'s biggest annual event.

Boston Hassle Fest 6 Indiegogo Campaign in Full Swing

Fall is in the air: the Red Sox have completely tanked, ugly sweaters are being taken out of musty closets, and “pumpkin spice” is being placed in every food and beverage known to human-kind. One of the few things I love more than pumpkin bread is music, and this year’s Boston Hassle Fest 6 has heaps of it to go around. The fest (slated to take place November 7 & 8 at Cuisine en Locale on Highland Ave. in Somerville, MA) boasts some mammoth headliners, including Body/Head (Kim Gordon/Bill Nance) and No Joy. Local and regional acts will be getting in on the action as well--Free Pizza, Downtown Boys, IAN and Pile will be there, along with a host of other regionally and nationally-known musicians.

Anyone interested in scoring advance tickets to one or both days of the shows can head over to the Boston Hassle Fest 6 Indiegogo campaign. Donating through Indiegogo is the only way to secure tickets in advance (as well as receive some other wicked cool perks), so be sure to grab your tickets early for these (most likely) sell-out performances.
