KEXP’s local show Audioasis, asked us if we would be interested in playing one of their monthly benefit shows and we jumped at the opportunity to support this month’s recipient, YouthCare.

The show is Saturday, November 3rd at the Sunset Tavern. RSVP to the event here and purchase tickets here (only $7 in advance). We are sharing the bill with fellow local Seattle bands, Western Medicine and Tokyoidaho.
