Jeremy Buckley yesterday announced the initial line-up for this year’s Lincoln Calling Festival, which starts Sept. 29. Below is the preliminary list of bands. Presumably more will be added (Do they really need more?), with a final confirmed list slated for Sept. 1. As always, this is a very solid collection of local bands with a few notable nationals sprinkled in. Buckley can pull this off because he actually pays his bands to take part in the event. The nine venues participating this year are The Bourbon Theatre, Duffys Tavern, the Zoo Bar, 12th St. Pub, The Alley, Marz Bar, Fat Toad, the Bricktop, the Black Market and the rooftop of Sandy’s (actually, that’s 10). Buckley said ticket prices will be announced next week, and you’ll get a substantial discount if you buy way in advance.
