Dual Summer: A Mix For OBEY

by Andrew Patterson

This year I have the distinct privilege of getting to work and play at one of my favorite Halifax music festivals: OBEY. If you are unfamiliar with it, I’ll say this: it’s absolutely the most bad-ass thing on my radar in Halifax. Freaky noise, wild skronkin’ and punk-as-fuck madness will ensue all throughout the weekend. Moreover, OBEY hosts an awesome zine fair and includes plenty of live art and interpretation. It’s sure to be a highlight of big city livin’ this summer and I can’t wait.

I just posted a mix that I made extra-special for the OBEY blog. Tracklist after the jump.
