Yeah! We’re finally playing with Debo, a Boston-based Ethiopian pop band and the What Cheer? Brigade, an 18-piece roving brass band from Providence, RI…this show has been quite a long time in the planning, so we’re thrilled that it’s finally going to happen. The music starts at 8pm and will end promptly at 11pm…The What Cheer? Brigade will open with a short set, followed by the Balkan Situations at 8:30pm. Next up is Debo, and then the Brigade will close out the evening–don’t miss this one!
