!!!WAKING WINDOWS!!!

It’s great to be apart of such amazing happenings in Winooski! I’ll be playing with The Blow for the 2nd time this Saturday at the Monkey (Details below) and it’s something not to be missed. It was a sold out show last time they were in town and I don’t expect anything less this time around. Angioplasty Media has put together an amazing line up of music, comedians and artists to celebrate this years Waking Windows festival to make it even bigger than last year and sure to be the best thing Winooski has to offer!! We are hoping our favorite Misery Loves Co. Big Red will be in tow to feed the masses- but we’ll have to wait and see. Here is the full line up & hope to see your faces there!!
