Im so happy for these guys. I've been watching them play small shows for a few years now and they always put on an awesome show. This is exactly the exposure they need to get bigger

R10, I live in Burlington. If I'm still in town that night, which I probably will be, I'll be at this show (I'd love to do a recap with Jesse for MU). Might be fun to see ya there.
