Mittenfest is a five day musical extravaganza to raise funds for 826Michigan's youth literacy programs. The festival, which began yesterday, is at Woodruff's in Ypsi and runs through the first of the year. There are some great acts still to come. Tonight Rainbow Vomit Family Band is playing. Tomorrow, Black Jake & the Carnies are finishing off the night. On NYE there is quite a lineup including Passalacqua, Chris Bathgate, Lightning Love and an Absolute Beginners dance party until 4am. Tickets each night are just $10. Pretty awesome.
