Say-eyed Johnnie Sunday knows a thing or two about ugly sweaters. His writing often feels like the familiar fabric of a castoff sweater, worn thin from long months spent lost in thought. The singer-songwriter is celebrating his birthday – born on the day after X-mass, Sunday seems like the middle child of the local indie scene – with a lineup of his fellow guitar-wielding sad boys, including acoustic punk rocker Jacob Andrew and the Frog & Bandit, Sunday’s own slacker rock project. Geared toward former teenage scumbags who really dug Radiohead’s The Bends, it’s the ideal show for people who care a lot about music and would like to forget everything else as another year ends. An added bonus? Discounted tickets are available for patrons who arrive in holiday swag or bring a can of nonperishable food to donate.
