    This will be our first gig at The Blue Note Grill after our double headliner gig with the Stinging Blades. It went so well, we think this one will be just as fun. Try the ribs, have an adult beverage, and slide onto the dance floor. Killer Filler opens.

"Hillsborough's Killer Filler ain't the most photogenic bunch, yet the band's new album "Filler Up!" is still highly visual music.
