    Since our last show at ear x-tacy back in May, we've been inundated with letters asking when our next show would take place. We are happy to announce that Joe Powers will be flying in from San Francisco to join band mates Robby King, Joe Webb, and Ben Fields for a one-show performance at Derby City Espresso on the 16th of November. Also performing that night will be the Band of Carnies. Come out and support your local and San Francisco music scene. Price of admission is a smile, high-five or a handshake (that means free).
