Years ago, our pal Leif from Walking Corpse Syndrome, 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,  passed out. But, when he woke the next day, he had people battling over who had the best recipe.

That sparked the music/food festival we call TOTFEST. A festival that features live performances from 16 bands while celebrating all things TATER TOTS. This action-packed "spud-tacular" is happening this Saturday (August 20th) at The Dark Horse.

Check out Leif's cooking skills from last years TOTFEST.

As with every TOTFEST, we are gathering not only to rock out and eat potato scraps. But, we also are scoring heaven points at the same time. TOTFEST began as a way to have fun while raising awareness and funds for great causes. This year TOTFEST will benefit Tverra Photography, a company that has been doing everything it can to increase awareness for the MMIW movement (MMIW stands for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. It's a movement that advocates for the end of violence against Native women.)

16 bands from the Northwest on two stages including Walking Corpse Syndrome, Blessiddoom, Ceres, A Balance Of Power, Wyatt Olney & The Wreckage, Boldly Stride The Damned, Elephant Graveyard, Dragged Out, Verota, Uncommon Evolution, Zephyria, Intice, Pressure Knot, American Philosophy, Deathcare Industries and Take No S#!t.

Full tater tots and regular menu provided by Mexican Moose. Drink specials all day. Plus enter to win the tater tot casserole or tater tot eating contest. 21+ $10
