Warm, friendly atmosphere combined with alcohol and good music proves to be a good mid-week hangout for hipsters of our age. It's getting to be a great scene! Drummers bring your hands and feet (Snare and cymbals are provided, but you could bring your own if you want). Guitars and Keys, we suggest you bring a small amp that can be mic'd. Bass rig is provided. (Mics and cords are provided, but you could bring your own if you want). Get there early (9:30 p.m.) to ensure a spot. Contact Ame Franco if you have any questions.
