Hi,We're playing Maxwell's on Wednesday 12/12 with Ludlow Lions and Object. There is much anticipation around this: we get to see some great bands that night too, we have new songs and broken gear. It's true, Jerel busted part of his bass the day of our last show. We all want to know, Will it be repaired in time? Or, will our pal Matt "clutch" Porter be called upon again for the use of his bass? The only way to find out is to come out to Maxwell's and have a great time with us!
