:: Fecal Friday!! ::

howell_down2.jpgAndrew is getting investigated by a government agency and Jay Howell got a seat thrown at him while riding down the Mission and ended up going over the bars to a broken collar bone. 2 DJs down for our closing show Friday night. Don't worry because we still got Jesse (aka DJ Ricky Suede) and possibly others... It really doesn't much matter anyway because the great Ral Partha Vogelbacher is playing. So we'll be seeing you on Monday for the closing of our 7.5 Year Anniversary Show @111 Minna. Good times. 8-2am.
