1998 Party at Wills Pub

1998 was a pretty good year for Kick Bright Zine. Tons of shows to report on from Spice Girls, Elliott Smith, The Donnas and Tortoise (you’ll have to scroll down a bit) and lots of really good records came my way to review.

Orlando band The Pauses has been putting on the “20 years ago” parties at Wills Pub in Orlando, Florida for a few years now filled with bands all covering songs from that particular year. This year is celebrating the music and culture of 1998 including The Pauses, The Sh-Booms, Tele & the Ghost of Our Lord, Zap Dragon & the Attack and more!

Kick Bright will be there with a special selection of buttons from all things 1998, some will be super limited only available during both evenings.

Visit the Facebook Event Page for more info and be sure to come out to either or both nights!
