I've been waiting to attend this winter music festival since I saw the lineup this year (2016). With acts like Metz, Bully and Tobacco, the music is diverse enough to keep me interested, and has me venue-hopping to parts of town I wouldn't normally frequent. Tomorrow Never Knows might not sport the blockbuster names we're used to at Lollapalooza or Pitchfork, instead, it offers a chance to see those artists before they start selling out shows on the regular.
