Since the first year of the fest in 2016, local bands have been welcomed into various houses, backyards, and music venues to bring a day full of music, comedy, and art to the capital area. What began as a collection of house shows has grown to a community event with the recent inclusion of The Avenue, Mac’s Bar, and other Lansing landmarks.

In previous years, the lineup has featured national acts such as Laura Stevenson, Diners, and Joe Hertler & the Rainbow Seekers, along with local acts like Hot Mulligan, Greet Death, and Michigander. This year headliner Speedy Ortiz will be joined by Suzi Analogue, Erica Freas, and many Michigan favorites like Mover Shaker, Bonny Doon, and Rent Strike.

Narco Debut | Metro-Detroit, MI
Since forming in 2012, the Metro-Detroit three piece known as Narco Debut have developed a style of music that is somehow pensive and explosive all at once. Throughout their time together, the band have crafted a live performance that is simultaneously nostalgic and something brand new, sounding similar to groups like Coheed & Cambria and The Mars Volta.

FFO: doom, gloom, wearing earplugs at shows


Krissy Booth | Lansing, MI
Since the beginning of her career, Krissy Booth has bridged the gap between performance art and concert, creating an experience that can only be described as entrancing.

Parkway & Columbia | Ann Arbor, MI
Drawing inspiration from artists such as Sufjan Stevens, The Antlers, and David Bazan of Pedro the Lion, Parkway & Columbia epitomize the sound of melodic indie and lilting vocals. Having played with other local acts like The Fever Haze, Vital Sea, and Dogleg (who will also be playing this year’s StoopFest) the rotating cast of musicians that make up Parkway & Columbia have made themselves a staple in the Michigan local scene. Catch them opening up The Avenue from 12:45-1:15pm and listen to their debut album, Transmissions, here!

FFO: basement shows, indie ballads, being in touch with your emotions

Composetheway | Detroit, MI
What began as a way to express her love for music and connection has become Jordyn Davis’ full-fledged musical creation known as “Composetheway”. Pulling influence from artists from Fleet Foxes to Miles Davis, Composetheway is somehow everything at once; sometimes jazz, sometimes indie rock, and always everything in between. You can check out Composetheway’s EP, Connections, here before you see them at Foster Home from 2:45-3:15pm!

FFO: composing your own way, red wine, swaying to the rhythm

Tryancareagain | Ferndale, MI
The group known as Tryancareagain have called themselves a cross between “deck rock” and “patio punk”, making them the perfect addition to this year’s lineup. Despite being fairly new to the local scene, the band has two strong singles that reside somewhere between folk punk and emo, which can be listened to here! Give them a warm StoopFest welcome by checking out their set at The Owl House from 2:30-3pm.

FFO: good bands with minimal released music, that one band that sounds like that other band you can’t remember the name of, strong song transitions


Outside Air | East Lansing, MI

If you find yourself on the East Side of Lansing this Saturday, drop by The Parrot Club from 6-6:30pm and check out East Lansing’s very own Outside Air. The three-piece hover from post-punk to shoegaze, with a sound that is reminiscent of Cloakroom or Nothing. Get ready for Outside Air’s set by checking out their music here!

FFO: walls of sound, headbanging with your eyes closed, being unsure of what to do with your hands at a show

    I kind of agree with everything said here. There’s just one problem. It doesn’t talk about what’s the best site to join to get laid. That’s the most important part of it all. If you’re wanting to get laid, then this is the site for you https://t.irtyf.com/hkz06n8e68?offer_id=3785&aff_id=29696&nopop=1 You’re going to get some pussy there. Don’t beat off tonight.

    I have really learned some new things as a result of your web site. One other thing I’d really like to say is that newer computer system os’s are likely to allow much more memory to be played with, but they likewise demand more memory space simply to operate. If an individual’s computer is unable to handle more memory along with the newest application requires that ram increase, it can be the time to shop for a new Computer system. Thanks

    One thing I’d prefer to say is that before buying more laptop or computer memory, look into the machine directly into which it will be installed. In case the machine is usually running Windows XP, for instance, the actual memory ceiling is 3.25GB. Putting in greater than this would purely constitute a new waste. Be sure that one’s mother board can handle the upgrade quantity, as well. Great blog post.

    The things i have observed in terms of laptop or computer memory is that often there are specs such as SDRAM, DDR and the like, that must fit in with the specs of the mother board. If the pc’s motherboard is pretty current and there are no main system issues, improving the ram literally takes under an hour or so. It’s one of many easiest laptop or computer upgrade processes one can imagine. Thanks for spreading your ideas.

    Thanks for your blog post. The things i would like to bring up is that computer system memory needs to be purchased if the computer can’t cope with everything you do with it. One can install two good old ram boards containing 1GB each, as an illustration, but not certainly one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should make sure the maker’s documentation for own PC to make certain what type of ram is needed.

    Thanks for the guidelines you have discussed here. One more thing I would like to mention is that computer system memory demands generally go up along with other advances in the technological innovation. For instance, when new generations of cpus are brought to the market, there is certainly usually a corresponding increase in the scale calls for of both the laptop memory along with hard drive space. This is because the software program operated through these cpus will inevitably rise in power to make use of the new know-how.

    One thing I’d like to say is before acquiring more personal computer memory, consider the machine in which it will be installed. If the machine is actually running Windows XP, for instance, the particular memory limit is 3.25GB. Applying above this would basically constitute some sort of waste.
