avfest.pngAfter a solid debut in 2011, The A.V. Club Fest grew for 2012 and paired with the Hideout, the host venue, taking over for the annual Hideout Block Party. Past headliners have included Wilco, Iron & Wine, Hum, and Archers of Loaf.

Now the 2013 lineup is here and it's looking to be another solid outing for attendees on September 6 and 7 at The Hideout. According to The A.V. Club, the lineup is as follows:

Superchunk
The Hold Steady
Neko Case
Mavis Staples
The Walkmen
The Both (Aimee Mann & Ted Leo)
Young The Giant
Nude Beach
Jon Langford
Girl Group Chicago
and Vision Celestial Guitarkestra.

At $60, the fest is a great deal. You'd pay close to $30 to see several of these acts on their own. To get them all at this great price, at a great outdoor space run by some great people, well, that's a damn nice bargain. Buy tickets at that price now while you can.
