Sweatfest at Shangri-La Records 

It seems like every week there is a new music festival being covered in this section of the paper, so why should this issue be any different? If you like outdoor music festivals but don't want to bother with the insane parking situation, then Sweatfest at Shangri-La Records on Saturday is the place for you.

Similar to Purge Fest (the swap meet Shangri-La hosts to get rid of the overstock of vinyl and CDs that the tiny store collects), Sweatfest will feature cheap prices on thousands of $1 LPs, CDs, and 45s. While Purge Fest normally features only one or two bands performing during the rummage sale, Sweatfest is equal parts swap meet and live outdoor concert. In addition to the albums on sale, everything in the store will be 20 percent off from 2 to 8 p.m.

Sweatfest is free to attend, and you'll want to get there early, because the music starts at 2 p.m. sharp. The following have been confirmed for the first annual Sweatfest: JJ Freeze, Jana Misener, Chickasaw Mound, Tall David, Ben Baker with special guests, Toy Trucks, the Sheiks, and James and the Ultrasounds. Each act will play for 30 minutes, with JJ Freeze kicking off the action.

It's called Sweatfest for a reason, so bust out the sunscreen, lawn chairs, and umbrellas, because what's more rock-and-roll than sitting in a lawn chair while local bands sweat like crazy in front of you? There will also be a food drive for the Mid-South Food Bank, and Shangri-La will be accepting canned goods throughout the event.
