2012 Lineup Announced for Already Sold Out Doe Bay Fest

The Cave Singers (L) and Blitzen Trapper (R) headline the 2012 lineup for Doe Bay Festival (Aug. 9-12).
Last night at the Tractor Tavern, Artist Home's Kevin and Chad, with help from KEXP's Hannah Levin, announced this year's lineup for the event you can't get a ticket for. This summer marks the fifth Doe Bay Fest (August 9-12), and the lineup looks pretty hot from over here. And, if my sources can be reliable (when drunk, mind you), they still might not be done. There might be one more butterfly in the net (besides that hint, just know they've got several label mates in the lineup).

Meanwhile, SIFF is doing another screening of the Welcome to Doe Bay Fest documentary that achieved all the buzz for it's premiere last month. It's 8pm on Monday at the Uptown Theater, as part of a Best of SIFF offering, and it doubles as a benefit for Cafe Racer. Just like the festival, though, it seems you can't get a ticket. Oh, and to rub it in, Damien Jurado will be performing prior to the screening.

Without further ado, here's the goodies:

Cave Singers
Blitzen Trapper
Bobby Bare, Jr.
Deep Sea Diver
