Best Music Festival 

Acid Kat Fest

Acid Kat Fest, which wrapped up its third year in early August, has quickly become St. Louis' go-to destination for music that's off the beaten path. Punk lives next to noise and experimental sounds, which take up residence adjacent to garage-rock offerings and even a smattering of hip-hop. The entire ecosystem is located underground, in the sludge and slime of the sewers, mutating and gestating and getting stranger every day before emerging to perform at the festival. And that's just how founder Austin Nitsua likes it. "We're all freaks and weirdos, and we all have the same ideas," he told Riverfront Times in advance of Acid Kat III. "We're all pretty much the same — we just like different forms of music."
