Huey Lewis meets Bigfoot

Wanna pay nothin’ to hear the hits of Huey Lewis and the News performed live by a band of people who have no association whatsoever with original artists? The New Drugs emerge from Huey-iatus again this Sunday at Birds Barbershop, 2110 S. Lamar, for Manfest ’08. We'll be going on around 5:30pm.

Here’s the full skinny from John Gross at PartyEnds

It's that time of year. Time for ascots, hot toddies, snowmobiles, hot tubs, ski lifts, and hot babes in bikinis and ski-gear. It's Manfest '08!

Last year was amazing, and if you missed it: confidence rock, knife throwing, a karate demonstration, arm wresting contest, flannel, deep fried snickers, pretty much everything a man could want. And this year, it's even bigger. Check out the poster; that's just the beginning. And no one is manlier than our guest of honor: Bigfoot.

Join us in a celebration of all things macho, and enjoy a strip of SoLa transformed into a ski lodge as you kick back with frosty beverages provided by Dewars and SteamWorks. Huey Lewis and the News cover band The New Drugs (5:30) will perform on the outdoor patio with Listener Project (4:30) who is making it in all the way from Arkansas. Listener Project head honcho Dan Smith was the champion of arm wrestling last year so he is coming back to defend the title. If ANYONE can beat him they get a YEAR of free haircuts and glory! As if things couldn't get any manlier - International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame member Cliff Hill will be chunking axes. That is right. AXES. Start growing your mustaches and we'll see you Sunday, December 7th 20-08 from 2-7pm. Did I mention that it is FREE?
