The music festival family in Houston just gained another with the Montrose Winter Social, coming December 3 to AvantGarden, Sole Purpose, Numbers, and Mango's, all at the corner of Westheimer and Taft.
Shiny Toy Guns are set as the national headliner for this inaugural event. The California electro-rock act is perhaps best-known for their hit "Le Disko" from 2006's We Are Pilots. The pack of locals is a great mix of electronic, indie, hip-hop, and all things in between, with //TENSE//, Muhammadali, Glasnost, Tax The Wolf, Hollywood F.L.O.S.S., and Ill Liad just a few of the big homegrown names.
Here is the list of bands set for the MWS, with more names being added daily, per organizer Eric Dean.
