Second Annual Speedbump Fest to Take Place on October 7

Jaclyn Wright, the organizer of last year’s Speedbump Fest, a memorial concert to friend Garrett Janos, a suicide victim, has said she would like to think of Speedbump Fest as “aimed at not only celebrating his life but also building trust and an openness to our community.”

For the second annual rendition of the festival, which will again serve as a benefit for mental health, she’s recruited underground bands Night Birds, FYPM, Weird Penis, Lockjaw and Rational Dads to perform.

The event takes place at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 7, at Annabell’s Bar & Lounge in Akron. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door.
