MENT Festival was shrouded in a bit of mystery for me. Embarrassing but true: upon agreeing to make the trip, I had to consult an atlas to figure out where exactly it was I was going. (Slovenia. Border countries: Italy, Austria, Hungary, Croatia, and the Adriatic Sea.) Likewise, the bands were a bit of a mystery. After Deerhoof dropped off the bill due to illness, I was only acquainted by name with a handful of others slated to perform.
