FMLY Slumber Party
On December 27 and 28 at the new chill spot, 5011, FMLY wants to combine minds with everyone they’ve jammed with over time and toss as many new names into the mix as they can. Together, they want to write the last pages of this decade’s influence on us. There's music all day today and tomorrow, but if you want to spend the night, bring a sleeping bag...there will be special acoustic sets in the early a.m. and FMLY reminds you that roscoe’s chicken & waffles is down the street (yum!). 10 bands each day; $5 per day; doors open at 4 music begins at 5; sleepover is FREE and bring instruments to jam with; lineup is subject to change at any moment! Lineup & more info available via FMLY.
