Kinda Whartscape all over again, this time without DD and co. at the helm!

Celebration, Dan Deacon, Arbouretum and 18 other local acts will perform Sunday at Hampden’s the G-Spot for the inaugural Scapescape.
The one-day festival will at least fill part of the void left when Whartscape ended last year.
Dave Underhill, one of the organizers, said the name is an allusion to the Wham City festival, but that Scapescape doesn’t intend to replace it. The festival aims “to provide a showcase for what Baltimore is doing as an artistic community,” he said to the Baltimore Sun.

Organizers have scheduled Cool DJ Willie to kick off the G-Spot Stage at noon, followed by Benjie Loveless and the Creepers. Celebration and Dan Deacon are the last acts scheduled there, with Deacon scheduled to go on at 10:45 p.m.

Lushfarm will open the Ruintown stage at 1:30 p.m., followed by rap duo Rapdragons and Weekends. Arbouretum will close Ruintown at 10:45 p.m.

They’ll all go head-to-head against Coroner, Nuclear Assault and Deathbreath, among others, who will be performing at the last day of the Maryland Deathfest.- sources Baltimore Sun and Facebook.

Tickets for Scapescape are $20 and sold at Atomic Books, True Vine Record Shop, and
