get well bomb



I'm booking the band(s) once a month for Damaged Goods, which goes down every Friday at the Astoria, now. The first one of those nights is this Friday. And, as you can see from the above flyer, the lovely guys in Boogie Monster agreed to play. They don't really fit the flow of a dance night, but personally, I think a loud, noisy band with DJs on either side is the best of both worlds. Oh, and the Astoria is finally allowed to stay open until 2am again, so come early and stay late.

Regulars: April 20th-April 26th

Monday
Skinny Mondays @ the Biltmore: Poolhall Gospel, Wild Life, and Closely Watched Trains

Tuesdays.... HOUSE PARTY at the Biltmore?

Is great!... but I'm sticking with nights where the band rotates. Ice Cream Social/Psych Night/Re-Up/etc are mostly the same week to week.
