After a late night Saturday, my voice is gone and doesn’t seem to be coming back any time soon. So, instead of going the podcast route, I’m going to put the event info here and you can stream songs from the artists below. I’ll be at Le Butcherettes Friday night and am ready to lose my mind while having my face melted by Teri Genderbender and her crew. They’ll be at Do Division on Saturday so if you miss them Friday you’ll have another chance!
