From the June 27, 2013 edition


2:15 p.m. Sunday, Offramp Stage

Two dudes bash out primitive garage pop in the 84 Nash/TNV tradition with a Stripes-y streak and an astonishing batting average. What’s not to love? —Chris DeVille

The Spikedrivers

2:50 p.m. Sunday, Bozo Stage

My theory behind the name of this bluesy country-punk band is that its warp-speed slinging songs will spike your heart rate and driveher to dance. Make Sunday count. —Jackie Mantey

Angela Perley & the Howlin’ Moons

5 p.m. Sunday, Gazebo Stage

Toward the end of an always-exhausting weekend (if you’re doing it right), I’ll be seeking out this set like it’s a big ol’ glass of iced tea. Perley’s energetic and nostalgic brand of alt-country will make the Gazebo Stage feel like a back-porch party and keep tired toes a-tappin’. — Brad Keefe

Comrade Question

5:35 p.m. Sunday, Offramp Stage

Comrade Question is the perfect band for a Sunday evening at ComFest, when the crowds have mostly dissipated and you’re looking for a second wind of radness to brag to all your friends who stayed home. This is sunny, guitar jangle-flecked, harmony-laced retro garage rock at its finest; a perfect distillation of all that makes Columbus wondrous. —Justin McIntosh

The Whiles

6:25 p.m. Sunday, Offramp Stage

The Whiles are a mainstay band in Columbus, and they’ve played ComFest before, but not in at least five years. They’ve got a new(-ish) album out, and their return to the Offramp Stage late on Sunday is a fantastic — and family-friendly — way to close out the festival. —Meghan Ralston
