NEW FESTIVAL ALERT: Day for Night just got announced and it’s a wildly eclectic lineup of music that will also feature artist installations (focused on visual/lighting designers) and influential speakers. Set for December 15-17, 2017 in Houston, TX, “Day for Night is both a current snapshot of popular music, as well as a showcase for trailblazers who continue to crossover from fringe to influential. The focus across multiple musical genres is on acts that specialize in an inventive and highly visual approach to performing.” Yes please!
