Longhair Illuminati Arts & Music Festival

Part 1 of the Second Annual Longhair Illuminati Festival (Part 2 is 10/3 in Pomona) takes place Sunday night at the soon to be closed Knitting Factory.  A little less noisy than FYF Fest but still offering a nicely diverse lineup.  There are two must-sees, and in between we're wandering until it sounds good.  First up is GREEN & WOOD, who are just coming off their record release show with CROM and DUSTED ANGEL which we missed, but reportedly was very well-attended and quite a rager.  And headlining is TWEAK BIRD, who we first saw a while back opening for BIG BUSINESS or the MELVINS or both at the Troubadour.  Well, life got even better for these guys when they got asked to join TOOL for 12 shows over the summer.  If that experience didn't make them a better band, they should call it quits.
