A benefit for literacy. Playing with a bunch of bands we've never played with, for an audience we've never played to. Could be amazing, could be a complete disaster. The only way to find out it is to attend! Doors at 7 Bands at 8

Another year, another BBQ. This year we were asked to curate the bands on Saturday. With that came a bit more administrative responsibilities (that were mostly handled by John), and we had decided to sit this one out and make our day the best we could. The other curators were going to have none of that and we were asked to play the opening night shindig at Live Wire.
Our Saturday line up was as follows: OUT, Nick Papador & Aluminum Xylophone Project, Montrose Man, Practice Wife, Body Futures, Haunted Heads, Photo Curio, The Paver (featuring Tony as guest drummer), The Gary, Bone and Bell, Maple Stave, The Austerity Program, Self-Evident, The Rutabega, and Petrillo.
This was a lightly attended Sunday show. 'Twas a good one though.
We are playing first this evening so show up early (or late depending on your tastes).
Here's the Facebook Thing (these links are eventually going to disappear into the ether, much like our MySpace page, right?).
Doors at 8:00 pm. 21+. $5-10 suggested donation.
