The first ever Sweatfest, a loud array of local music acts, will take residence in the hothouse garage and the adjacent backyard of the Sweatshop Gallery Saturday, July 5th, starting early at 6 p.m. The art gallery/DIY show spot, 2727 North 62nd St., is looking to use the funds to upgrade the venue’s sound system, as they hope to continue to host punk shows, DJ nights, hip hop showcases and other events in their Benson space. The genre-hopping is scheduled to include performances by M34N STR33T, Coaxed, Flamboyant Gods, Anna McClellan, Worried Mothers, Thick Paint, BOTH, Lunch, Telepathy Problems, No Thanks, Fletch, Skeleton Man, Feral Hands and Nathan Ma. Admission is $8 at the door.
