What’s going on this weekend? Some bands play a house show tonight (Fri., Dec. 30) for Lost n’ Found Youth, with 50% of the door and all additional donations going to the charity. It will also be the release show for Sleep Weather and Pace House’s new split. The rest of the action occurs on NYE, naturally. Some highlights include WERC-Out Fest at the Music Room, Gringo Star at 529, Royal Thunder at the Earl, and the Russell Gunn Krunk Jazz Orchestra at Gallery 992. Have fun and be safe!
