Next Show, Friday January 25th:The Brass Rail


Oona rocks the Rail Crowd! Join the fun!

Good news, due to a last minute scheduling conflict with self-described “outlaw troubadours”  Against the Grain, the Elkys will find themselves sharing the stage with a permutation of Jana’s country pickin’ band, “Old and Dirty”. This time they are electrified and have a more rockin’ vibe. Don’t miss Electric Dirt! Rounding out the bill will be those rascally roustabouts, the Sour Mash Kats. The Show starts at 10pm and will cost you a mere 4 bux.
