Tomorrow night (or today, depending on when you read this), we’ll be proudly hosting the second evening in our Lost City Winter Series. This time, we’ve got a night of electronics and experimentation. Read on below for a preview of the sounds to come, and check out the facebook event here for more information.
Mine All Mine & the Lost City crew are proud to announce the Lost City Winter Series 2012-2013. A “spiritual successor” to last year’s Mine All Mine Winter Series, shows will be held at the Dragonfly Lounge every other week all winter long. The series features many local and regional artists seen at the Lost City Music Festival 2012, plus newcomers to the scene.
Highlights include the Winter Series Kick-Off Party on December 21st (the first day of winter), and the Winter Series Finale on March 19th (the last day of winter). The Winter Series Finale will feature Madison-favorites Man Mantis and Double Ewes, with a headlining set from Ever Ending Kicks (featuring Paul from Mt. Eerie, Motorbikes, LAKE, etc).
Each show will include special, hand-crafted merchandise (limited edition posters, screen printed shirts, etc.), and 25% of ticket sales will go toward the Lost City Music Festival 2013. Oh yes, we will be doing it all again next summer, and we need your help to make it even better than ever. Hit up one or more of our shows this winter, snag some merch, and support doing big things in local music!
Below, you will find the complete series schedule and lineup. Show times and participants are subject to change. Tickets available soon.
The festival starts tomorrow! For now, here’s another quick update…
