"Anybody that shows up with guitars and cymbals can play three songs," exclaimed Schrunk, who also highlighted the Aug. 24, Nor Cal vs. So Cal baseball game at Jackson Park across the street from Thee Parkside, which hosts the festival's final show that night.

Thankfully, the fun won't stop there: attendees can look forward to more label action this year with the release of the new LP by locals Surrender. Schrunk asked if I've ever seen them live before. I hadn't, but it was nothing to be embarrassed about: he smiled and, in the sharing spirit of his label and store, sang their praises: "You should see them sometime — they're really great."
