On Friday is Bad Balloon’s 1st Anniversary Party at Wills Pub with Wet Nurse, TV Dinner, Demo and Expert Timing. Also playing is The Place Mats, a Replacements tribute band!

The next night the show will be outside at Dirty Laundry with more of our favorite bands: Beach Day and The Woolly Bushmen along with The Saucy Jacks, a powerpop band from Oakland California.
