Monster of a party at Blind Bob’s
August 19

Cyclops Fest

In preparation for the first-ever Cyclops Fest in Yellow Springs September 17, Blind Bob’s will play host for a preview party at 9 p.m. Friday, August 19, and, you guessed it, it’s monster-themed. Come dressed as your favorite ogre or “become the monster” at Cyclops’ do-it-yourself monster table complete with tin foil hats, face paint and free T-shirts and bandanas to accent your monstrous get-up. With Technological Epidemic, DJ Ethan and DJ Etch spinning the vinyl, it’s time to get pumped for Cyclops Fest, which is only a month away. This is the first annual Cyclops Fest, the DIY outdoor festival that has been strangely absent from Dayton while cities all over the nation (and the world) have jumped aboard the trend. The festival will feature local vendors selling handmade goods, along with regional artists and musicians for a daylong experience unlike any other. Ruckus Roboticus has already committed to play the festival and hopes remain high that many other talented local acts will jump aboard the bill. Cyclops Fest is the weekend after Dayton Music Fest, so local music fans have their hands full for two weekends in September to experience the best the Miami Valley has to offer.
