On this day in 1994 the Yoyo a Gogo festival began in Olympia, WA. Curated by Pat Maley, the festival featured five days of music by an incredible lineup of artists including: Beck, Jad Fair, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Halo Benders, Lois Maffeo, Some Velvet Sidewalk, Built to Spill, New Bad Things, The Softies, Rancid, Cub, The Crabs, Girl Trouble, Bunnygrunt, Yo La Tengo, The Spinanes, Mecca Normal, Crayon, Go Sailor, Heavens to Betsy, Unwound, Team Dresch, Kicking Giant and many more!

It was totally punk and 100% independent – nothing like the corporate music festivals that pretend to be “punk” today. It was truly an amazing event.

Here is a homemade video which includes some great footage of many of the bands at the festival. For some reason, this video features the terrible Jefferson Starship song, “We Built This City.” (Crayon appears briefly at the 2:38 mark). Enjoy!

    Bummed to miss this. Pretty sure I got the Yoyo Comp “Julep” because, and pretty sure I know which band in the vid is Rancid.
