Malachy Kazi can't find enough opportunities for young artists to play in the city, so he's making them. "I was thinking this could be the start of an annual, all-ages festival," says the general manager of New Art Records, a label that focuses on young and emerging artists. Kazi's talking about this weekend's Summer Blowout Festival, a two-day event he's put together that sees young artists performing at CD Heaven. The festival starts Friday evening with a few hours of band sets and moves into Saturday afternoon's acoustic performances. Bands Snow and Blackbirds, ...Ants & Anchors, Mogli, Paradise Project, Shaun, Lovebutter, Chunk Audio and Joel MacLean are signed up to play, with a few more acts to be decided. Everyone's welcome to get in on the festival---Kazi stresses that it's not just for artists who work with New Art Records---so if you're interested in signing up just find New Art Records on Facebook and send Kazi a message.
