Long ago,  Walking Corpse Syndrome's former frontman Leif had a craving for a proper tater tot casserole. He reached out to social media for suggestions on how to make the best tater tot casserole. Soon after he wrote the message, he passed out. But, when he woke the next day, he had people battling over who had the best recipe.

Check out Leif's cooking skills

That sparked the music/food festival we call TOTFEST. It is a festival that features live performances from rock and metal bands while celebrating all things TATER TOTS. This action-packed "spud-tacular" is happening again this year. Coming up on the first Saturday of August at the Dark Horse Bar.
