Your weekend just got PLANNED, man. The Helsing Junction Sleepover takes place this weekend (August 16-18) just a short drive away in Rochester, Washington. (That's just north of Centralia and south of Olympia—about an hour and 45 minute drive from Portland.) What's the Helsing Junction Sleepover? It's K Records' super cool summer fest, with music from LAKE, Brainstorm, Karl Blau, Arrington de Dionyso's Malaikat Dan Singa, the Shivas, Tender Forever, Jeffrey Jerusalem, and lots more. Plus it also includes the Northwest Literary Showcase, with Kevin Sampsell, Michael Heald, Ariel Birks, and lots of other writers too. Best of all, it's all held on the Helsing Junction organic farm, with places for picnicking, swimming, and lots of summertime activities. Check out more details of the event over on K Records' page.
