Top Ten Best Acts to Perform at SunFest 2013
If we are superior at anything at New Times, it is at having opinions. We're talking like we even have something to say about the kind of toilet paper your mom buys (leaves stuff in our butts!) or the size of raindrops falling from the sky (they're too skinny).
So, of course, we needed to speak our piece about all the acts performing at SunFest this week. Starting tomorrow with the Smashing Pumpkins and ending Sunday with Kendrick Lamar, here is our list of ten best acts to see at SunFest.
