My Pet Dragon headlines SAWFest in Salem

Granville’s own Todd Michaelsen is returning home with his band My Pet Dragon to headline at the annual SAWFest Music Festival in Salem on Saturday, Aug. 18.

Michaelsen is lead singer, songwriter and guitarist for My Pet Dragon, who are the featured act along with fellow SXSW (short for South by Southwest, a major music and lifestyle festival in Austin, Texas) veterans My Pet Dragon and Railbird

SAWFest celebrates its sixth year with seven bands hailing from the Capital Region, all converging for one night of music. This year’s SAWFest runs the gamut from rock, electronic and indie. Rounding out the main stage are local darlings The Black Ships and The City Never Sleeps. SAWFest’s Stage 2 features solo acts Eric Margan, Anthony Fallacaro and Josh Robin. Tickets are on sale now for $20 through Brown Paper Tickets.
SAWFest is at Salem Art Works, 19 Cary Lane, Salem. The event starts at 5 p.m.
