As we’ve mentioned previously, Bob Miller’s PBR-sponsored Megacity festival debuts this Saturday (9/10) at Woodlands Tavern, and it’s a reunion-heavy lineup: 84 Nash, The Cusacks, The Bygones, Bigfoot, plus the original lineup of Tree of Snakes and Chris McCoy‘s first Columbus show in a year. Bill Fox is coming down from Cleveland, Wussy and the Seedy Seeds are coming up from Cincinnati, Kevin Failure of Pink Reason is coming from his overseas tour (where apparently he broke some ribs).Plus plenty of other great Columbus bands, many of whom have something special planned for Saturday.

Also, I wrote a story for this week’s Other Paper about Megacity and the other two music fests coming up in the next two weeks, Music Week Columbus and Independents’ Day.

Here’s the full lineup and set times for Megacity’s three stages (two indoor, one outdoor):

Sunday in Columbus: Lots to Do

It’s a surprisingly busy Sunday in Columbus for great music. If you play your cards right, you might be able to hit all three of these events because of their varied start times.

Over at Used Kids, The Cusacks are reissuing their 2002 album More Songs From Vagabondia. It’s remixed, remastered, and there’s new packaging. Kyle Sowash and Super Desserts are also playing this free show that’ll have free pizza too. This starts at 5pm. Full details here.

Here’s some Cusacks songs to get you prepared:

MP3: Earthworms
MP3: Boy With Hearts for Hands

Doors open at 6pm for the Columbus return of Margot and the Nuclear So and Sos@ Skullys. They’re celebrating the release of their new albums, and I think this is the first time they’re playing in town since former Columbus and Tiara dude Erik Kang has been a part of the band. Also playing this show is David Vandervelde and Judgement Day.

Starting promptly at 8pm is the Elephant 6 Holiday Surprise at the Wexner Center. Featuring people from all your favorite E6 bands, this event is sure to be one for the books.
