Gonerfest 9

Blues, booze, and BBQs. If that’s not reason enough to head to Memphis, add Gonerfest, an underground music festival hosted by Goner records’ founder Eric Friedl. 2012 marked the ninth festival in almost as many years, and with bands like The Spits, The Oblivians, and Nobunny headlining, there wasn’t a moment to be missed. So, Al Partanen, Justin Modica, Preston Harper and I were Memphis-bound to check out the music and local terrain. Thanks to Goner for still putting out good music and a great festival. I hope to see you at number 10. —Joe Hammeke

Cover boy Jeremy Leabres front blunts through the kink and slides through a 16-page jaw dropper of an interview. Ben Raemers backs it up with a 12-page interview which leaves no doubt that he's one of our country's most valuable imports. GX1000 scrubs away at London; Volcom crushes some cobblestone in Portugal and Vans sends some notes from their video base camp.
