When you think about it, 16 really isn't that sweet. Sure, you can drive, but there is all this pressure to fit in, mom and dad won't let you borrow the car and that guy from art class asked someone else to the winter dance. Just us? OK. Well, back to the point we're trying to make. Being 16 is tough. But if you've been celebrating the local music scene via awesome concert/awards show for the past 16 years, that's another story. The WYCE Jammies celebrates its 16th year on Feb. 13 and our local music scene is better for it. Throughout the five-and-a-half-hour night, there will be performances, awards and pajamas. Yeah, you heard right. Those things you sleep in. This isn't the Oscars, you know.
The Jammies takes local music seriously, not life. Speaking of local musicians, there will be performances from more than 20 acts on two stages. That's a lot of music. Performers include The Verve Pipe, Mustard Plug, Ghost Heart, Valentiger, The Muteflutes and more. And if five and a half hours of celebrating isn't enough, Seth Bernard is hosting an after party starting at 11:30 p.m. and featuring Lindsay Lou and the Flatbellys, Mark Lavengood and more. Those who attend in their PJs or donate $10 to WYCE will get a free album from WYCE's collection.
