Maybe for the rockers... https://vimeo.com/76368972 https://vimeo.com/4554293 Or the guitar nerdiness... https://vimeo.com/4664719 Or the beatboxing... https://vimeo.com/83294930 Or the sentimentalism... https://vimeo.com/76648722 or the cover songs... https://vimeo.com/23574776 or the sing-alongs... https://vimeo.com/92998023 Or maybe just because you need a break from your Netflix binge-watching. I know I do. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door. Please spread the word and bring your friends. I will make you look hip and in-the-know.
