Xmas Round II

7 p.m. Friday, January 12. Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center (3301 Lemp Avenue).


Did you get everything you wanted for Christmas? If not, trot your arse on down to the Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center for the sixth annual Xmas Round II, a variety show and craft fair. Headlining is Chicago duo Herc, a band that mixes ski masks, cheap suits and accordions into a shambolic sideshow. Folkie-about-town Jesse Irwin also performs, along with electro-spaz Superfun Yeah Yeah Rocketship. Local artists Brian McNearny, George Gittens and Lizzy Snyder show off their crafty wares, which should make great post-holiday gifts for all the people you forgot during the first go-round.
