Upcoming: JUE Festival

In the loving kind of mood, so I wanted to give a quick shout out to Split Works and their upcoming JUE Festival, which was a blast last year, and looks to be raising it to a whole other level of greatness this year. All year round, the crew over at Split Works work long and hard to bring some of the best international acts over to the capital, both world renowned and obscure. The JUE Festival this year kicked off last last Saturday with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and will get things in full gear this weekend as Ben Gibbard’s juggernaut of a band Death Cab for Cutie takes over Tango…and sixteen year old Will here is gonna go nuts. And that’s only the beginning – the festival which runs from March 9 to March 25 is bringing everyone – from DJ Rob Swift, The Stooges’s Steve Mackay, AM444, The Rainbow Danger Club, Eatliz and more – to the Big Red.
