Just look at it outside right now. The annual downtown St. Patrick’s Day parade has been cancelled today, but our store is still open from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm and we still have this show going on at our space tonight. Definitely come only if you are feeling up for it, wash your hands, etc. Tonight is the big EP release show for local band Blushe! Blushe have been playing shows for well over a year now, and their first recordings have been long anticipated. For this show we welcome garage punk band The Dry Look back from Champaign. It sure has been a minute since they last performed here, perhaps at Black Sheep. Stream some of their music on the player embedded below. Also Attic Salt is performing, a band everyone knows and loves. Before them is Dexter Anodyne performing another solo show. Looks like opening things up is the electronic synth act also with a new album, Ricki Marvel.
