Well, it's that time of year, when no one in their right mind would host an outdoor party because it's the dead of winter and what the hell are you thinking? We're thinking this is the worst winter we can remember and god dammit we're gonna have some fun outside if it means freezing our asses off. Lucky for us/everyone, we're inviting some kick-ass bands for this snow down throwdown we're calling Music Frozen Dancing and there's always the comfort of good booze to warm that chilly heiny [Empty Bottle].

You crazy for this one! The Empty Bottle will be hosting a winter block party called Music Frozen Dancing on March 1, with performances by guitar-slinging favorites Marnie Stern and Diarrhea Planet, and locals Heavy Times and Rabble Rabble (DJs). The free event will kick off at noon, and is set to feature brews from Goose Island, a chili buffet provided by Bite Cafe, hot coffee from excellent local roasters Dark Matter, and plenty of winter activities (indoors and out).

They're also planning "some late-night shenanigans," so stay tuned.
