Deck out your ugly sweater with tinsel, Christmas tree lights, feather boas and whatever your junk drawer has to offer to get $2 dollars off the door price. In keeping the theme of giving and welfare, the event will be running a drive to collect travel-sized personal hygiene items (like toothpaste, tooth brushes, soap and deodorant) for an SA based homeless program. Third place winners in the Current’s 2014 Music Awards for Best New Artist and finalist in Gorilla Music’s ongoing San Antonio Battle of the Bands contest, the Happy Campers are an effective collage of folksy styles, with a blast of violin for extra oomph. Containing the beauty and grace of a Beethoven composition and a pinch of Tim Burton-esque whimsy married with rockin’ guitar and bass, Moonglow is an eclectic gem. Headliners Octahedron have a lot to look forward to after placing second in the Texas Unsigned Artists Competition and placing third in the Current's Music Awards for best Indie Rock Band. Formed in 2013, Octahedron and their winning brand of optimistic indie can only bloom from here. Invision Love's big brassy sound (courtesy of a Euphonium, Trumpet and Tenor Saxophone) coupled with smooth indie pop vocals provides a unique listening experience. With Denton pop band Velvet Army. $8-$10, 7pm, Jack's Bar, 3030 Thousand Oaks, (210) 494-2309   -Shannon Sweet
