KVRX Fest was well done. I came from Dallas to attend and was pleasantly surprised to see Dallas' Fishing in Japan of which I had no prior knowledge. Plus other great bands. Kudos to the radio station and the students, especially considering that final exams were happening. Kudos to Rachel Rascoe and the Chron
for promoting and following it ["Faster Than Sound
," May 17]. Kudos to Cheer Up Charlies and Symphony Square.
KVRX Fest reminds me of KTSW's MR Fest that ran for 10 years from 2008 through 2017, the last weekend of each April. KTSW is Texas State's student-run radio station. At its peak, one year there were over 60 bands/artists and 10 or 12 venues for the two-day event. A lot of indie bands, rappers and comedians. Fat Tony, who was at this year's KVRX Fest, appeared there twice. At the time it would have certainly been one of the largest student-run festivals. Its catchphrase was "No cash, no wristbands, no problem" because it was all free. I miss it, but here's hoping KVRX Fest will fill the void.
