Bitterfest was a big ol' success.

On Saturday night, the UNINTIMIDATED crew and a few of the UNINTIMIDATED bands descended on Evelyn's on Main St. in Racine for the second annual BITTER FEST, a day-long marathon rock show that's free to get in to and features a fundraising raffle to donate funds to a good cause. That cause this year was our little project, and the show was a big ol' slam-bang success! Fourteen bands blasted through 25-minute sets from 3 PM until 1 AM, including UNINTIMIDATED bands Heavy Hand, Body Futures, IfIHadAHiFi, and Donoma. When all was said and done, well over $1000 was raised, which will cover production costs for the CDs, DVDs, and zine printing that will be commencing very soon!

We want to extend a very sincere thank you to everyone at Evelyn's, including Tom, Dustin, Jessica, and Gretchen; the Hey Muchacho guys for running sound, and every band that made the trip to Racine to donate their time to our little art project. Every dollar raised will eventually make its way to Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin and Milwaukee soup kitchens, in an effort to directly help those getting most screwed by the Wisconsin Republican Party's regressive and profit-minded policies. 

So, the question now becomes, when the hell will YOU guys get to hear and see some results from all this work? Very shortly, folks...we're this close to getting all the videos edited, and the songs are completely mastered. We're in the home stretch!

Until then...
