The Mittenfest event for 2007:
as quoted from the 826 Michigan site: http://www.826michigan.org/events/365/second-annual-mittenfest
Join us for our second annual celebration of all things Michigan. We had such a great time at the Corner Brewery last year that this year we’ve expanded Mittenfest to two additional venues and another night. (And so many bands wanted to be involved, we’ve already decided that next year’s Mittenfest will likely involve three full days of music!)
- Friday night, 12/21: The Blind Pig in Ann Arbor. Starling Electric, Canada, Lightning Love, The Decks, and more. Doors at 9:30pm, $7.
- Saturday, all day, 12/22: The Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti. Acoustic sets by Frontier Ruckus, Matt Jones, Misty Lyn, Drunken Barn Dance, The Victrolas, Actual Birds, Eric Kelly, Old Big Bear, That’s Him! That’s the Guy!, Jen Wilke, Emily Jane Powers, and more. Show starts at 1pm, $5.
- Saturday night, 12/22: The Elbow Room in Ypsilanti. Chris Bathgate, Charlie Slick, Champions of Breakfast, The Mighty Narwhale, Deastro, and more. Doors at 10pm, $5.
Among many other things, this means that for the low, low price of $20 (to benefit our free student programming, of course), you have the potential to see more than twenty bands over the course of two days. Are we the only ones who find that prospect terribly exciting?
Many thanks to all the musicians and venues who have so graciously stepped forward to help us! And, of course, a huge thank you to Brandon Zwagerman, who is to Mittenfest what the wizard is to Oz.
