Kate Hinote (from Kate Hinote and the Disasters) reached out to us at the start of the week to let us know about a free show she's put together at the Rust Belt market this Sunday, Dec. 11 in the afternoon.

"I've put together a Holiday Acoustic Showcase for the Rust Belt Market in Ferndale for Sunday, Dec. 11th from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.," Hinote says. " The thing that's different about this one, besides the holiday aspect and inevitable Christmas songs, is that there will also be wine tasting with Woodberry Wine and an artisan food vendor event with Mitten Crate. Score!"

Here's who I've snagged this go around and when you can catch them:

1 p.m. - Holly Bernt
1:45 p.m. - Ryan Allen
2:30 p.m. - Audra Kubat / Tamara Finlay / Emily Rose
3:30 p.m. - Anthony Retka
4:15 p.m. - Kate Hinote & The Disasters
