Garagefest -- a three-day music festival at South St. Louis' Heavy Anchor -- took place February 21-23, drawing 16 bands from far and near to celebrate the raw sounds of garage pop and punk rock.

While the snow on Thursday night threatened to put a damper on the festivities, the show went on and both Friday and Saturday shows were well attended (none of Thursday's bands are pictured here). In addition to music and the usual band merchandise, a cassette (yes, a tape!) was created featuring all 16 bands, and a special edition of the Acid Kat zine also was available. Bands ranged from ragged-edged local acts to more polished bands from as far away as Dallas/Fort Worth.

Friday's show featured Animal Teeth, the Girls 2021, Holy Doldrums, Sleepy and the Bedtimes, Bruiser Queen and Oil Boom (from Texas).

Saturday's show featured the Mitch II, the Brainstems, Thee Fine Lines (of Springfield, Mo.), the Brothers Gross (from Indiana) and the Nevermores.
