AJ Woods Cassette Release Venue Change
Tortuga Gallery Tonight!
Last minute change of venue for AJ Woods' tape release, the fourth location change for this show. Because AJ is willing to tempt fate with the audacity of Hercules, he is now also bringing a bag of black cats to dump in front of his path to the stage.
The previous location, published in this week's Alibi with an enthusiastic review of AJ's latest collection of dark folk-rock, had its electricity cut. Show up instead at Tortuga Gallery, 901 Edith SE for the same excellent opening acts: Javelina, San Diego's Labs and Julie Byrne from Seattle. If you like dark American folk-rock, this is the ticket.
