Day for Night: FPH Delivers Us a Winter Music/Art/Whatever Extravaganza, At Long Last

18fa18b21b320ccc5f7770df87bfe364Oh, yes. Ever since the very first-ever Free Press Summer Fest hit this city, there’s been grumbling and griping out there (and from me right here, it’s true) about why in the sweet fuck did Omar Afra and his Free Press Houston crew decide to schedule their big-ass music fest for the hottest part of the H-town summer? And could we please-please-please make it “Fallfest” or “Winter Fest” or something?

Lo and behold, those prayers have been answered. Late last week, we got word that a brand-new music fest-type thing — they’re pretty clearly trying not to get it pigeonholed as just another “music festival” — will indeed be coming this winter, on December 19th & 20th over at Silver Street Studios.

It’s called Day for Night, and apparently it’s a partnership between the FPH and a NY creative firm called Work-Order. They’re calling it an “experiental art and music festival,” and while details are still extremely sketchy, it sounds promising, to say the least, which much more of a focus on the art side of things than FPSF currently has. High-five to Omar & his people for listening to us grumblers and gripers and actually doing something about it.

There’s no lineup or anything yet — that’ll be released by the end of this month — but pre-sale tickets are available, and they’re selling out fast, as in “they might be gone after today.” If I were you, I’d grab tickets now; odds are good the price will jump once they’re out of the pre-sales.
