I've never heard of any of the 12 acts at this mini-fest, but that's not necessarily a bad thing--after all, I'd knew of most of the acts at HullabaLOU, which made me quickly realize how miserable its line up was
. In addition to music, this event will feature a nautically themed fashion show, light and laser shows, graffiti artists, ice sculptures, break dancing, poster signings and more. Tickets are $15 in advance and can be purchased at eTix.com
