You follow a certain routine each Sunday: wake up at the crack of dawn, do some yoga, and eat organic eggs and ham. Then you head off to church and convene with the Lord until the starchy hold of your collar wears out. You spend the rest of the day sculpting little figurines out of driftwood collected at the beach, which, despite your best efforts, become increasingly phallic in resemblance.

You’re repressed, man. Stop living the cloistered life and head to Hot Mess Sundays, a no-cover party featuring DJs Dizzy D and Epidemic spinning tunes that will loosen your moral fiber. Local indie-rock bands Seven Car Pileup and Talk Fiction will put on live sets.
