It's a big year for fans of Will's Pub - the bar celebrates 20 years. 
**UPDATE** Looks like the Will's Pub anniversary is a full weekend extravaganza that also includes festivities on Friday-Saturday, Sept. 11-12, including massive reunion shows. Days break down like this:

Friday, Sept. 11
My Hotel Year (sold out)

Saturday, Sept. 12
Bughead, Junkie Rush, Gargamel!

Sunday, Sept. 13
To do it right on the last day, they've dedicated Sunday, Sept. 13 to an all-day party from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. and so far, it features more than 20 amazing Florida acts that are either currently crushing it or else revived for this special occasion. Here's everyone announced so far:
  • Thomas Wynn & the Believers 
  • The Spitvalves 
  • Have Gun Will Travel 
  • The Sh-Booms 
  • The Legendary JC's 
  • Richard Sherfey & All God's Children 
  • The WildTones 
  • Golden Pelicans 
  • The Ludes 
  • The Hamiltons 
  • Brown Bag Brass Band 
  • The Woolly Bushmen 
  • Grave Return

  • Wet Nurse 
  • DJ BMF 
  • Christina Wagner 
  • Tanner Jones (You Blew It!) 
  • Princeton's Guff 
  • Bithlo Rising 
  • Jim O'Rourke & the Rugs
The bands on Sunday will be spread across three stages (Lil Indies, Will's Pub, the "dirty laundry" pavilion), and if you show up early, your $20 admission includes beer tastings from 2-5 p.m. representing great Florida breweries in true Will's Pub craft-beer-forward fashion. These are the breweries involved so far: Cigar City, Brew Hub, Crooked Can Brewing Company, Two Henrys Brewing Company, Orlando Brewing, Orange Blossom Brewing Co., Ten 10 Brewing Company, Redlight Redlight, Red Cypress Brewery and Cask & Larder.

FYI: All of this info is on the very comprehensive Facebook event page where you can also get updates, like the possibility of a special T-shirt designed for the occasion and info on vendors and food trucks participating in the event. If the T-shirts look anywhere near as rad as the poster for the event, I'm already sold on one:
