Sites and Sounds: Tesco Fest- Slaughter By The Water 3- Ride Festival- More

Whether you fancy punk, metal, Americana or a little of everything, there's a festival for you! antiMusic travel editor Kevin Wierzbicki gives us the lowdown on Tesco Fest, Slaughter By The Water 3, The Ride Festival, Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Festival and FYF Fest

Tesco Fest
August 18, Detroit, Michigan
Upset that there's not really an annual punk festival of note, the Meatmen's Tesco Vee has taken it upon himself to create one and name it after himself. Set to appear at the inaugural Tesco Fest at Detroit club The Magic Stick are Negative Approach, Antiseen, Gang Green, Iron Cross, Hellmouth, Against the Grain, Bill Bondsmen, Golden Torso and of course the Meatmen.

Slaughter By The Water 3
August 25, Alameda, California
Chuck Billy of Testament hosts this metal blowout that happens right on the deck of the (supposedly haunted) aircraft carrier the USS Hornet. Bringing the thunder will be Philm, Severed Filth, Absu, Witchaven, Impaled, Autopsy, Fog of War and Abysmal Dawn. Tickets purchased for all main stage shows also entitle the holder to a free tour of the ship, including a haunted tour. The ship itself is essentially a museum and there is a separate $12 museum entry fee for all show goers.

The Ride Festival
August 25-26, Telluride, Colorado
Kick back in the scenic mountain setting of Telluride for two days of rootsy music. Scheduled to perform are Big Head Todd & the Monsters, Lucinda Williams, Los Lobos, JJ Grey & Mofro, the Lumineers, the North Mississippi Allstars, David Lindley, James McMurtry, Matthew Curry & the Fury and more.
