Are you looking for an excuse to break out your holiday best this weekend? Then you might want to head over to the El Rey on Saturday night for the third annual Christmas Sweater Festival. Local bands The Deadly Syndrome, Eskimohunter, Castledoor, The Pity Party, Signals, and 400 Blows will be delivering festive cheer for a good cause: Teen Impact, a local support network for teenagers with cancer. Good music, good cause, amazingly awful sweaters, how could you go wrong?
And we have TWO pairs of tickets to give away to you, dear faithful Metblogs readers! If you wanna go, all I ask is that you leave a comment below telling me about the most horribly hideous, awful Christmas gift you’ve ever received. For bonus points, I want to know what you did with that gift: did you relegate Great Aunt Mabel’s horrific handmade sweater to the back of the closet to languish and collect dust forevermore? Did you toss those Rudolph slippers that Grandpa so lovingly picked out just for you into the fire with the yule log? Or (horror of horrors) did you regift you mom’s fruitcake and pass it on to some unsuspecting soul? (If you did, there might be a special level of hell reserved just for you. )
Anyhow, want tix? Comment below! And make sure to use a real email address that you actually check and stuff so that I can get ahold of you.
