Much like Hubert Stencil in Thomas Pynchon’s classic debut V., we’ve been searching high-and-low for information. Information on a different V., not some obscure name or some Maltese spy plot. Not looking for Victoria, Vheissu, Vesuvius, or Venezuela. Nope, we’ve been looking for something more obscure… this year’s lineup for CROPPED OUT. AND HERE IT IS! With, as usual, The Other Side of Life’s PICKS-TO-CLICK in bold:
Mark your calendars. Water your balloons. Buy a top hat for your newborn baby human. Cropped Out V is upon us…

CROPPED OUT is a 100% DIY, independently-developed gathering of musicians occurring annually in Louisville, KY, USA. Now in its fifth straight year (time flies when you’re lacking funds), this charmingly strange and truly unique event highlights the creative efforts of Louisville natives and fellow thinkers from the backwoods of Kentucky to neon glow of international metropolises.
A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to our homeys at Monofonus Press for their generous assistance with helping us organize this year’s event!
STAY TOONED FOR MORE DETAILS…
More details, including band descriptions, are gonna be on the way soon. In the meantime, gather together your whole sick crew, and make plans to get CROPPED OUT… for the Vth time!
