We're back at The 78 this coming Saturday for an evening of indiepop, anti-folk, good beer and good company (you'll have to supply that last one). We kick off at 9pm and we'll play through until they kick us out at midnight. Free entry, of course!

I've set up a Facebook event if you're that way inclined. Hope to see you down there!
