Sweater Fest drapes the Milk District in itchy, funky holiday cheer on Saturday


The usually scarcely populated and grimy back lot of the Spacebar and Sandwich Bar in the Milk District is about to get a lot more warm and fuzzy. You know that holiday sweater you swore you would never wear after 2012? It’s time to dust it off for Saturday’s Sweater Fest. Besides the multiple circles of friends expected to form in the back lot, prepare your eyes and ears for the groovy goofiness that is silent disco. But we won’t go into too much detail about that – it would ruin the fun! The outdoor stage won’t be blasting the NSync Christmas album, but think of this year’s selection of bands as an all-star lineup with SWIMM’s party-ready psychedelia and Fat Night’s jazzy funk. 

with SWIMM, Fat Night, Someday River, Thrift House, Harum Scarum, Timothy Eerie, Die Tryins and Frankasaurus Fresh | 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 19 | The Milk District, 2428 E. Robinson St. | happycamperbooking.com | $10
