Last week, we announced the downright awesome lineup that would be playing outside Boone & Crockett on Saturday, October 12 during the Harbor District bar’s Flannel Fest. As if seeing the likes of Polica, Har Mar Superstar, REYNA, Klassik, Immortal Girlfriend, and more at the free autumnal affair wasn’t already enticing enough, Flannel Fest organizers have another impressive trick up their sleeve.

On Friday, October 11, The Cooperage will play host to a dynamic duo of bygone bands who will each be reuniting for what’s being called the Flannel Fest Pre-Party. The Wildbirds—who, by our calculations, haven’t played out since 2012—will headline this extra special show. They’ll be joined by The Championship, who quietly called it quits a few years ago when bandleader Joe Crockett started up Rx Drugs.

This double reunion bill starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door (while capacity permits). Oh, and as you search your closet for some flannel, you can get ready for this event by listening to former Wildbirds singer (and current GGOOLLDD member) Nick Ziemann talking about his time in the band on our My First Band podcast. See you there!
