Apparently it’s a big day for festival announcements. This afternoon, organizers Andrew McCarry and Chethan Kenkeremath unveiled the initial details for the next installment of their Avant Fairfax festival. Currently set to run on August 22 from 5pm until 1am, the first three acts announced are Max Ochs (check out a December 2008 interview with Ochs by BPB’s Cole Goins), Scarcity of Tanks and Moon Pie. Ochs needs little introduction; Moon Pie is an interesting ambient/psych duo from D.C., and Scarcity of Tanks is based in Ohio but otherwise might as well be called Scarcity of Information for all that I can find out about them.

The venue for this Avant Fairfax episode is the Point In Space Gallery. Check out Avant Fairfax at Myspace for all the details available to date.
