The latest installment, dubbed Winter of Weirds, comes this Thursday at Churchill’s. Like past editions, it mixes up known artists who play weird music, unknown artists who play weird music, and known artists who don’t usually play weird music but who are playing weird music for the event. From the first camp come up-and-comers such as Mask Era and Jellyfish Bros, while from the second camp come local noise music heavyweights and Night of Weirds all-stars such as Rat Bastard and Amanda Green. The last camp includes acts that are usually downright melodic, namely acoustic songstress Raffa Jo Harris. Somewhere in the middle are bands from the circuit that play proper songs but from unpredictable genres — Humbert, Holly Hunt — and even a couple of artists who usually work outside of music, such as Clifton Childree.
