Minibosses have been doing their annual Shotfest concert for four years now. That's a little surprising since the concert, which features local bands doing a shot before each song they play, probably should have sent someone to the hospital by now...

Shotfest 4: The Quest For Peace (it's a play on the much-derided final installment of the Christopher Reeve franchise) will go down this Friday, December 10, at Yucca Tap Room in Tempe. Like everything at Yucca, there is no cover.

Minibosses headline with Flagstaff's I Hate You When You're Pregnant, locals The Necronauts, and Los Angeles' Totally Radd!! and Denver's Mr. Pacman.

They really upped the ante, promotion-wise, with a slate of 13 different posters drawn by friends and colleagues, each of which features a different super hero puking.

The message, it seems, is that even our heroes need to puke when they've had a dozen shots in 30 minutes. Check out a few on the jump.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
