A classic that features a barrage of members of bands who went on to play in/form even more bands. Days in December were based in Champaign, IL and included Roy Ewing (Braid, Very Secretary, Mary Me), Rachael Dietkus (Very Secretary, former mpPA tour violinist), Tim Adamson (Very Secretary), and Jeff Garber (Castor, National Skyline). Jeff is credited under the William Hawk pseudonym.

Sweater Weather were from Chicago. Three of the four members were in Gauge and Radio Flyer (Kevin Frank, Ryan Rapsys, Paul Obrecht) with Zac Conway rounding out the group. In addition, members also played a role in a handful of other bands including Traluma, Sky Corvair, Haymarket Riot, Euphone, Heroic Doses, Bill Ding, and Joan of Arc.

Two bands have rarely complimented each other as well as Days in December and Sweater Weather. Superb musicianship b/w jazz-filled instrumental extravagance is but one description. Although Days in December played several shows and had a handful of songs, "main.in.vine" is the only one the band ever recorded and released. Sweater Weather went on to release a two-song single on Divot.
