High voltage energy and fun last night at Missfits Tavern.  We had the honor of opening the show for Madison's AWESOME Mossmen.  These guys are a must see (or at least check out their material on Spotify).  Also on the bill was Bloth's cool new Sunbeam Collective.  Thank you all for coming out to see the bands!
