Apparently Southern Lord did a festival last year out west that I didn’t know about, which makes sense, because I don’t live out there. I can only keep tabs on things I have a snowball’s chance in hell of catching! While it’s highly unlikely I’ll be able to attend the newly announced Eastern rendition of the festival (it won’t happen), it’s nice to see such an underground label like Southern Lord spread its branches in such a way that they can put on two festivals on opposite ends of the country on the same year.

So here’s the lineup to this year’s Power of the Riff East, which takes place Septemberr 01st and 02nd at Warsaw in Brooklyn, NY:

September 1

Pentagram
Special Guest TBA playing a special album set
Poison Idea
Negative Approach
Xibalba
Alpha & Omega
Power Trip

September 2:

Sunn 0)))
Winter
Repulsion
Unearthly Trance

If you can make it out, have a blast! Wear earplugs during Sunn O))) or kiss your hearing goodbye. After the jump, check out the date and lineup information for Power of the Riff West!
