’Tis the season! And as we’re all a-bustle, anticipating the main event can leave us looking for opportunities to party off that seasonal anxiety. Friday’s Winter Fest can help with that. Plus, it’s a damn fine way to show returning Saytown ex-pats what badass music they’re missing out on the rest of the year. Featuring Crown’s chunky, prog-psych sounds, Islands & Tigers’ grunge-pop hymns to youth, Wolf Tone’s mathy and noisy gems, the dense shoegaze explorations of ants., the freak-out jams of The Freebies, and much more, this show will be packed with aural merry-making of the local variety.
