UPDATE, 9/27/2012: CROPPED OUT IS A DAY AWAY!
Some lineup changes to note: DAHM is unfortunately sick, so he will be missing this year’s CROPPED OUT. Get well, Dahm!
In his place are not one but two doozies: 90’s power-violence pioneers SUPPRESSION (from Roanoke, VA) and FAT HISTORY MONTH (from Boston, MA; on Sophomore Lounge).
Lots of food trucks and vendors and whatnot will be there too, so don’t forget the tomfoolery!
