Jelly Roll Mortals

The Epicure Cafe in Fairfax is one of our favorite spots. They recently relocated after disputes with their landlord forced them to find a new space. The new location is just down the road on Lee Highway. It’s bigger and even better. Help us break it in, 10-12 on Saturday, February 15.

Well, we kinda took the summer off on account of work and vacation schedules, and we have about half a CD in the can. Now it’s time to play a show and see if we still remember the songs.

I think this will be fun. We gots lot’s of pent-up musical energy and it’s time to let it out.

As always, New Deal Cafe has excellent Mediterranean food, good beer and wine, nice people and no cover (band plays for tips).
