Thanks to all our friends for coming to the show!

The Elky Summers played a short opening set for the super talented Dex Romweber Duo at the Brass Rail in Fort Wayne, Indiana last Wednesday. The set included a new song and a dedication to Elizabeth Taylor: ” She proved how alluring wounded, angry, brittle oversexed nutjobs could be… ”

The ladies of the band stayed and watched the musical stylings of Dex and Sara and everyone managed to get home at a half way decent hour. On a side note, the last EP was sold at the show and now all that are in existence reside at NEAT, NEAT, NEAT. Morrison Agen’s record Store on Calhoun Street. But don’t dispair, more EP’s will be pressed this weekend.
