FAR OUT 333 UPDATES & ANNOUNCEMENTS from Thee Astral Guru

Come all ye psychonauts of Nashville and beyond; summer is upon us, and this turn of the wheel of the year brings with it longer days, warmer nights, pollen, and a veritable plethora of exciting news to share from your psychedelic summer solstice happening, FAR OUT FEST 333!

>>>The COSMIC FAR OUT MARKET will be happening in just over a month on June 9 at Little Harpeth Brewing! This bizarre bazaar will feature all sorts of goods and gifts from an assortment of our favorite local artists and merchants, and we’ll be revealing this illustrious list this Friday(!) so stay tuned!

>>>The FAR OUT INTERNATIONAL FILM FEST, which will be held at none other than Nashville’s iconic Belcourt Theatre this year, received an incredible amount of wonderful submissions from here there and everywhere, and we are beyond thrilled to share the lineup with all y’all cinephiles next Monday!  Tickets will be available from their website starting this Friday for just $12, so get em while the gettin’s good!

>>>Bit of a bummer to announce that neither Lake of Fire nor Joe Kelley will be able to grace us with presence or performance this year, but take heart, for we are pleased to announce…

>>>CHRISTIAN BLAND AND THE REVELATORS will be headlining the third FAR OUT FEST! Yes, Christian Bland, guitarist of the legendary Black Angels, and his backing band of merry men (backing band reserves the right to be neither merry nor men but may very well have another Angel in its midst) will be bringing us blissed out jams of psychedelic goodness perfectly fit for a summer solstice celebration.
