Just over two years old, The Rabbit Press is now staging its sixth and possibly most epic biannual release party to date, inviting shoals of local musicians and visual artists to join in the party as they embark upon their third year. The independently produced arts publication has a reputation for hosting memorable and well-attended events, and tonight’s celebration at Cannery Ballroom will feature performances from earnest and eccentric experimental popsters Darla Farmer, psychedelic punk trio Turbo Fruits, New Wave-influenced megagroup The Non-Commissioned Officers, pristine indie-pop four-piece The Silver Seas and introspective pop songstress Madi Diaz. There will also be visual art from Brandon Morgan, Kelly Bonnadies, Casey Pierce, David Hellams, Jordan Jaquess, Sara Estes and Alicia Waters and more, not to mention $2 Yazoo drafts, DJ sets from notorious debauchery-inspiring crew Electric Western and a new line of Rabbit Press merchandise. Hell, I’m getting a hangover just thinking about it.
