Q: Hey Naren! Hope allz well on your end. Scotty from Oleander Tea Co. from Asheville. Can we open for you on 10/13! Love Brevard and we need to get outta town a bit more. Let me know. All the best.
A: Hey Scotty-Funny you should contact me cuz I was gonna contact u guys. I was wondering if y'all would want to share a show with me at the LAB on 11/23. As for Brevard, I think we r gonna do this one on our own.But we'd love to do one with y'all in the future. Actually had another band ask to share in Brevard too so maybe we could do all 3 on one bill. I'll talk to him about it. take care. Naren
