Times like these, we need the possibility of getting all druggie and blissed-out in the sun. We're not afforded these opportunities in February in the Northwest, so The New Frontier is manufacturing one for you. Saturday, there will be an assemblage of beach-appropriate bands to carry you kicking and wading through the more unfortunate months of our year. On the bill are local favorites the Night Beats - no strangers to ignoring the elements in favor of stoned riffs and acid-rock journeys through the mind. Also on the bill are accomplished surf-rock troubadours, Orca Team. The Hotels bring a cleaner, more upfront pop sensibility to the party.
If this weren't enough to keep you from succumbing to Seasonal Affective Disorder, there will also be a limbo contest.
Pro tip: don't go as low as you can go.
