Catching Up With Local Drummer Joe Foelker

By David Goe

Dixiefest starts today and if you don't know where to start when it comes to picking out which of the 40+ bands to see, start with these two: Forsberg and Cheapart. I caught up with the drummer of both bands, Joe Foelker, and he's pumped up for the weekend.

"Stoked for Dixiefest," Foelker said. " We will bring the punk rock and hardcore and we are ready to go fast and take names." 

One of Foelker's bands, the trio Cheapart, are armed with new merch, new songs, and new DIY recordings. Forsberg, the latest of Foelker's projects, is a five piece hardcore band also ready to debut new material at Dixiefest.   

"We just want to play music and share it with people," Foelker said. 

Foelker has been drumming in local bands for as long as I can remember. You may have seen him playing in the popular (and disbanded) ska punk group Bad Karma Kings in the past.

Catch both of his new projects Cheapart and Forsberg this Saturday, June 8 at Dixiefest at the 4th Door in downtown Grand Junction. You can purchase a four day pass for $25 at the door or single day passes from any of these bands or at First Issue Tattoo Studios.
