Palaver crawfish bash
We’re excited to be teaming up with local indie label Palaver Records and Yazoo to put on a real humdinger next month in hosting a killer FREE event on the east side that should not be missed. We’re having a Crawfish Bash on Saturday, May 9 that will have bands, beer, and boiled crawfish in the lovely outdoor setting of the grassy lot in Five Points next door to Bongo Java East. The day-long event gets started at 11am, and will feature music from some of our favorite local acts including Kim Logan, Kyle Andrews, The Tip, Blackfoot Gypsies, Allen Thompson Band, Sexx, The Blue Velvets, and The Future.

We’ll have a more thorough preview of the event to come, but if you like being outside and listening to music and eating crawfish, or any combination of those things, then get this on your calendar right now.

Let’s try the safer option, let’s get out to see some live music.  We have single release shows, cover shows, jam band shows, Daft Punk shows, and pretty much any other show that you can imagine.  Find what’s going to fit your vibe best with our staff picks in another edition of TWiN.
