Pig Out fills plate with top bands

Local, national talent to pump park with music

Weighing in at 100-plus bands, and with a wingspan spreading over six days on three stages, Pig Out in the Park 2012 is absolutely obese with music.

And as always, it’s all free.

Add to that 54 food booths boasting 255 menu items – nothing priced more than $9.25 – and three adult beverage gardens, and you have the ingredients for one of the most heavily attended events in Riverfront Park for more than three decades.

Along with the litany of local and regional food fare, there is a smorgasbord of options to satisfy your taste in grooves.

This year’s concert headliners include punk-funkers Fishbone, legendary 1960s rock outfit The Yardbirds, and ’90s arena rock giants The Verve Pipe, who are scheduled for appearances on two days at Pig Out.

Among the regional and local highlights is Grammy Award-winning Seattle-by-way- of-Spokane blues champions Too Slim and the Traildraggers, featuring the Underworld Orchestra horns section, Spokane-rooted party band Civilized Animal, Experience Music Project Sound Off winners Nude Pop, and local country rock favorite Silver Treason, which features Jamie Frost from The Makers to name a few.
