A much-needed freaking out 🤘

Now in its third year, Freakout Fest’s kid sibling, Freakout Weekender, once again landed with force in Belltown for a much-needed freaking out during the first weekend of March.

Taking the international, psychedelic, punk ethos from the main Freakout Fest—which is longer and held in November—Freakout Weekender stuffs as many bands as possible inside a Saturday and Sunday for a concentrated dose of fun. Across the three stages of the Crocodile complex (the main stage, Madame Lou’s, and the Here-After), plus a stage at Belltown Yacht Club just down the street, 24 acts strummed, drummed, and raged over 48 hours. 

One of the weekend’s co-headliners was Fuzz, a scuzzy, ’60s psych rock-influenced trio from San Francisco, featuring rocker Ty Segall on vocals and drums. In addition to Fuzz, here are photos from the weekend, all taken by West Smith. (👀 More of West’s work here.)
