The Cinnamon Fuzz’s newest album, Cruise of the Century, was listed as a 2010 favorite by Boston Music Spotlight. Mean Creek, one of Boston’s hottest bands of 2011, recently won Best Act in Boston in the Boston Phoenix’s 2011 Best Music Poll. “The caliber of bands that responded to our call was phenomenal,” says Corey Jackson, Managing Director of Arts After Hours.

The event will also feature a for-sale art and demonstrations by local artists Lisa DeJoie (jewelry), Farah Ahmad (woven jewelry), Sean Lobdell (painter), Danielle Girard (craft), Katie Sullivan (fine art), Tim Thurott (furniture), the artists of Spyral Glyphics, and more.
