Next month, why not go and rob a bank, steal a car, and then head out on a wild spree which ends in Pontiac, so that you can attend Berserker IV? (Actually, we can think of a few reasons why not to do that — maybe just buy a ticket, like everybody else; a two-day pass is $60.)

This year it goes down at the Crofoot in Pontiac, on April 14-15.

With the vaguely theatrical Gwar, as well as the mellow good times music of Eyehategod, Negative Approach, and Off! headlining, this year's Berserkerfest festival promises to be an awesome mix of sludge, doom, hardcore, crust punk, and metal. The full lineup is below:

The Obsessed
Negative Approach
Brain Tentacles
Child Bite
Immortal Bird
Horrible Earth
Cemetery Piss
Fuck You Pay Me
Cotton Museum
Against The Grain
Hollow Earth
Artillery Breath
Sunlight's Bane
Night Vapor
Fell Ruin
