BBQ at 5, music at 8
An intimate evening with Dylan Champagne: Join us for a very special night of acoustic music to celebrate the release of Dylan Champagne and the Lost Explorers' new EP "The Bones EP." Appearing solo, Dylan will be performing a range of new and old material – some of which hasn't been performed since 2008 and some of which hasn't ever been performed. Admission is free; there will be a donation jar as well as beer and wine by Bloom.

Sounds Like: PIXIES, Leonard Cohen, Violent Femmes, Joy Division, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
