Brandon Zwagerman and Mittenfest in the Metro Times

While flipping through the Metro Times this evening, I ran across a familiar face, that of Madisonfest mastermind and Just Haircuts and Jackets' most appreciated commenter, Brandon Zwagerman. Brandon and his latest projecct Mittenfest got a lovely little Loftus-penned write-up, touching on the origins of the events (Brandon's desire to put on a show while home for the holidays) and its philanthropic goals (raising scratch for nonprofit tutoring and writing center 826michigan).

And that reminds me … everyone who's reading this should go to Mittenfest (you can still go see Child Bite later in the evening, and catch the daytime Mittenfest acts)!


Here be the lineup (organized in two acts, like a play!)

ACT ONE:
02:10-02:40 EMILY BATE
02:50-03:20 NEED-BASED PAINT
03:30-04:00 EMILY JANE POWERS
04:10-04:40 I AM A BOLT OF LIGHTNING
04:50-05:20 THE VICTROLAS
05:30-06:00 FRONTIER RUCKUS

INTERMISSION
06:10-06:20 SANTA & RUDOLPH

ACT TWO:
06:30-07:00 PATRICK ELKINS
07:10-07:40 JIM ROLL
07:50-08:20 MISTY LYN
08:30-09:00 MATT JONES
09:10-09:40 MITTEN EFFECT (CHRIS BATHGATE & FRIENDS)
09:50-10:20 FRED THOMAS
10:30-11:00 ACTUAL BIRDS

Hope to see you there (and you know you will be there),
Erik

As I understand it, the photo in the print edition is hillariously large, as well. I think Doug Coombe had rather few photos of me from which to choose...

Also, a scary photo of Chris Bathgate in Real Detroit.
