    AA Mets vs AA Yankees, y'all, and the forecast is bea-u-tiful for the Bingo-town showdown. Come straight from work: 2-for-1 drafts during our set (5:30-6:30p), and we'll be pre-gaming it up nicely with some of our favorite originals, and some covers guaranteed to blow your hair back (as delivered by incomparable-and-awesome vocalist extraordinaire, Rebecca Frame). Come say hi to us after we play and we'll probably give you something awesome, too. BMets will be giving away Esquela gift bags, (loaded up w/ music and merch), and playing Esquela songs throughout the game. As soon as we're done playing, we're looking forward to getting seats and rooting proudly for our Binghamton Mets. After the BMets game, we're playing our first-ever show at FITZIE'S (9 Main St) starting at 10pm. We're gonna party our asses off in there, people. Bring your 7/18 BMets ticket stub and there's NO COVER (or only $3 without the ticket). Come party with us, come say hi (and we'll give you stuff, probably). Invitation: https://www.facebook.com/events/844642832229739/ "FREE BEER" http://www.reverbnation.com/esquela/song/21331610-free-beer (FREE DOWNLOAD. Check it out)
