Dan Deacon, Celebration, Rapdragons, and more perform at inaugural Scapescape festival; schedule released

scapescape.JPGCelebration, Dan Deacon, Arbouretum and 18 other local acts will perform Sunday at Hampden's the G-Spot for the inaugural Scapescape.

The one-day festival will at least fill part of the void left when Whartscape ended last year. 

Dave Underhill, one of the organizers, said the name is an allusion to the Wham City festival, but that Scapescape doesn't intend to replace it. 

The festival aims "to provide a showcase for what Baltimore is doing as an artistic community," he said.

Organizers have scheduled Cool DJ Willie to kick off the G-Spot Stage at noon, followed by Benjie Loveless and the Creepers. Arbouretum will close the stage at 10:45 p.m.

Lushfarm will open the Ruintown stage at 1:30 p.m., followed by rap duo Rapdragons and Weekends. Celebration and Dan Deacon are the last acts scheduled there, with Deacon scheduled to go on at 10:45 p.m.

They'll all go head-to-head against Coroner, Nuclear Assault and Deathbreath, among others, who will be performing at the last day of the Maryland Deathfest.

Tickets for Scapescape are $20 and sold at Atomic Books, True Vine Record Shop, and 

The festival is not BYOB; beer and wine will be sold with proceeds going to charity.
