It is that time of year again. The weather is turning cold. Ugly sweaters are flying off the shelves, the media is waging its war on holidays, and we’re approaching the end of the United States as we know it (not really, because it rocks and stupid people can’t bring that down).

We could all use some good news, right?

Well, it doesn’t get much better than this! Treefort Music Festival, while quickly becoming the epicenter of independent music and art fests, has announced these first 75 of, likely, 400+ bands that will rock the City of Trees come March 22-26, 2017:
