About Who Gives A Fest

The purpose of  “Who Gives A Fest” is twofold, the festival hopes to fill the void of live music in La Crosse, WI in the hopes of giving the local entertainment industry artists a chance to showcase themselves; while raising money for the Sprout for Kids Foundation to help area bars and restaurants affected by the Covid 19 shutdown.  Funds will also be shared with Punk Rock Saves Lives who focus their work on Human Rights, Equal Rights, Health Concerns, and more. One of the keystones of the music community, especially Punk Rock, is the ethos of taking care of one another. By championing this ethos through various campaigns, each hand-chosen by the artists, Punk Rock Saves Lives can elevate their messages of hope, activism, and change to effect positive change and drive awareness.

About Coyote Kid

Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Minneapolis based Coyote Kid (FKA Marah in the Mainsail). The sound is dark and mysterious at its core. With layers upon layers of dynamic turns, from the hopeful highs of “Fox hole” to the guttural darkness of “the Great Beyond’. Between Durry’s true grit voice, and Cassandra’s tender subtlety, you’ll find a vast array of narrative and stylistic possibilities. With imposing and wild jungle drums, soaring brass horns, growling bass, and shimmering spaghetti western guitars.

About The Homeland Conspiracy

The Homeland Conspiracy is an intensely driven rock band that formed in the underbelly of the Midwest as a voice of reason in early 2011. Self-classified as an “aggressively progressive wake up call to the modern music agenda.” The Homeland Conspiracy says what they mean in songs like The Bailout, River Killer and 60 To Thrive. Each song is different from the next and you’ll hear influences from bands such as Helmet, Queens Of The Stone Age, Black Flag, U2 and Rage Against The Machine. Collectively T.H.C. shares 30+ years performing experience and remains active in their communities by playing charities and helping those in need. They have shared the stage with several national acts such as The Midnight Ghost Train, Royal Bliss, Another Lost Year and Lullwater.
