Gigawatts Magazine has announced the line-up for its third-annual Gigawatts Festival this summer, and it looks as though they’ve taken a pretty big step forward. It’s all going down July 24-26 at the three new Bushwick “W” bars (The Wick, The Well, and soon-to-be-opened Our Wicked Lady), with over 80 bands that will include a ton of favorites like Swearin’, Liturgy, Guerilla Toss, Pile, Mannequin Pussy, Ava Luna, Amanda X, and many more. The three nights will be headlined by the Black Lips, Anamanaguchi, and emo-powerhouse Braid respectively.
