350 Brewing Co. Presents: “Mest Up Weekend” on Friday, January 17th and Saturday, January 18th, 2020. On Friday, Mest will host a special listening party for their new album, Masquerade, and play an intimate acoustic show for VIP ticket holders. Saturday, Mest will play Wasting Time in its entirety with special guests [DETAILS BELOW].
Since forming in a working class suburb of Chicago in 1995, Mest have been tearing up the punk rock scene. Playing in local Chicago punk clubs, the group self-released their debut album, Mo’ Money, Mo’ 40′z. The band got their first real break when frontman Tony Lovato sent the band’s album to Goldfinger’s John Feldmann who helped them get signed to Maverick Records, and produced their major-label debut, Wasting Time, which was released in July 2000. Since then the band has released 3 more albums on Maverick — 2001’s Destination Unknown, 2003’s self-titled disc, and 2005’s Photographs– and toured the world many times.
Now the band is releasing Masquerade, set to be out on January 17th, 2020. The album was produced by Cameron Webb (Alkaline Trio, NOFX) and will be distributed via The Orchard.
