05_21_09 Washington, DC, here we come!

Tonight we’ll be playing our first show in Washington, DC in roughly a YEAR. That is an awfully long time and we’re super super excited to be coming back, particularly because the bill we’re joining is amazing. We’re appearing sandwiched between Casper Bangs and Deleted Scenes, both of whom are great. Show is at the Black Cat Backstage, $8, doors at 9. It’s going to be a wonderful night, and we’re looking forward to seeing all of you there!

And just a reminder, this coming Monday is the final show in our Piano’s Residency. So far we’ve had an awesome time, come help us finish it off with a bang! More about that soon. For now, it’s time to hop in the van. Hooray!
