We reported earlier a rumor that Drive Like Jehu might be playing The Fest this year. They are not doing that. A statement from Fest organizer Tony Weinbender is below.
Drive Like Jehu is not playing Fest 12 and whoever started this blatant in official rumor is on my shit list! I had to squash all this after enjoying a wonderful day of a much needed vacation in the rain forest! Thanks for cause a mess of problems whoever you are!
It seems as though Drive Like Jehu will be playing a reunion set at The Fest this year. Check out a teaser image in the replies. We have reached out to Fest for official confirmation, so we'll update this post with news if we hear anything. Just saying, this would come alongside a Knapsack appearance as well. All of our Fest 12 coverage is here.
