The Power of the Riff Festival (West Coast Division) adds more power, a little sunn 0))) to lineup

The Power of the Riff festival — West Coast division — has announced that six new acts have been added to the lineup for the “event that honors extreme music fans and musicians of all ages,” and gives a place for metal fans to congregate and not get laughed at.

In addition to previously announced bands OFF!, Dr. Know, Repulsion, Noothgrush, Xibalba, Eagle Twin, Power Trip, Ancestors, Alpha & Omega, Gaza, DNF, Retox, The Love Below, Avon Ladies, Cops, and Hordes, the one-day festival emanating from Los Angeles’ Echo/Echoplex on August 11 and co-curated by Southern Lord Records will now also include sunn 0))) (making their first West Coast appearance in three years), Nausea, Despise You, Hoax, Bio-Crisis, and Xaphan.

This year’s event marks the third anniversary of the festival and will also include a record swap/meet of local stores and pop-up stores by indie record labels, DJ sets, and a food-truck food-court featuring plenty of fried food, at least a couple versions of hamburgers, and for the more adventurous type, fish tacos.
