WHAT A HALLOWEEN?! Probably the best Halloween I’ve had in years. I hope you all had a great time and wore some crazy ass costumes as I did (I was bad NYPD cop. HA!). I thought maybe this weekend I’ll chill but, it’s not likely. Saturday here in San Francisco is probably a very low-profile festival that this city has seen but, will be HUGE. FOG RISING FESTIVAL is a first that has mostly Tee Pee Records recording artists and some locals as well. Here’s the official write up;

Secret Serpents and Tee Pee Records present Fog Rising

Sentimental stories continue to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Woodstock in the mainstream media. But the year was a turning point for rock 'n' roll -- when music fragmented into so many styles and scenes.

Prog-rock. Metal. Experimental psych. Kraut-rock. Stoner-rock.

Which is why Secret Serpents and Tee Records present "FOG RISING" -- a celebration of the twisted offspring of that fragmentation.

San Francisco is the home of the club festival concept, not to mention
psychedelia and poster art. It all started here -- long before the masses
passed out and latched onto Woodstock.

Artwork will be displayed by famed poster artists, Alan Forbes, David D’Andrea, Alan Hynes and Marq Spusta.

Among the bands performing are Witch - this will be Witch's only west coast performance of 2009. Saviours, who release their brand new album "Accelerated Living" on October 26th, Ancestors, who have a highly anticipated release of their own coming out October 6th titled "Of Sound Mind", Red Fang and many more.

Advance Tickets are on sale via the Secret Serpents website.
