Here’s our second part of a look at some of the artists and can’t miss shows for Light of Day WinterFest 2016.  Since it’s likely you’ll only be able to hit one venue at a time, we’re highlighting our favorite place to be for each night of Light of Day.  For the first part of our preview click here.
