A Bearded Brodown at the Brohawk

'Misprint's Beard and Moustache Contest returns tonight!

A Bearded Brodown at the Brohawk

This year, the third annual Misprint Beard & Moustache Competition moves to the hirsute bosom of the Brohawk on Friday, Feb 20 (that's tonight!), allowing room for even more extreme hair. The categories remain the same: Gnarliest Beard, Sweetest 'Stache, Best Groomed, Chops, Freestyle, and Ladies. Local comedian Matt Bearden will be on hand to host and make jokes about all the hipsters in attendance. Plus, the magical mystery beard of Cavedweller provides the psychedelic tunes.

In this new era of hope and change, can we expect anything different this year? A Misprint representative had this to say: "There have been some rumors floating around the blogosphere about Barack Obama showing up astride a handsome centaur and waving his magic tomahawk, instantly adding 12 inches to everyone's beard. This remains unsubstantiated."

Starts at 9pm, $5, 912 Red River.
