If you’ve read about The Gracchi, it probably wasn’t in the Alibi. Former Editor in Chief Laura Marrich has played in the band since its inception, so the paper was ethically unable to cover the act, but now we can. Read all about it in The Gracchi Reunite at Garage & Wax. The group’s original lineup performs at Captain America’s fourth Garage and Wax Night. Check out video of Ashley Floyd proposing to Marrich below. Low Spirits • The Gracchi • Pan!c • Pumpin' for Jill • Riley Switch • Sat Dec 15 • 8 pm • $5 • 21+ • lowspiritslive.com
