Edgefest 18: "Edgier" than Ever!

The lineup for "Edgefest 18" Presented by 102.1 FM "The Edge" came out today, and has a few notable bands. Recall that there was actually another Edgefest earlier this year (you guessed it - Edgefest 17) which had exactly zero notable bands. In any event, v18.0 - taking place at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco on October 25 - will feature the reuinted Stone Temple Pilots (remember that Scott Weiland will be playing a solo gig at the Granada just a month later), The Offspring, Staind, the reunited Toadies and some others. OK, maybe it's not that great of a lineup, but it would be for some. Tickets are $69.50 and go onsale Saturday (pre-sale starting today for "Edgeheads"!!!!).
