9PM | 21+ | $8 adv $10 at the door

With: Trash Night, Professor Maybe, Blood Sport (dan B. Of Tj Kong)

This was the record release show for Tragically Magical. It took 5 years for me to finally let this album go. It's now yours. Treat it kindly. Here, you can buy it on bandcamp right now. Soon you'll be able to stream it on all those stream services.

The show itself was great. It was a night of all friends. If you haven't downloaded Trash Night's record yet, you really should. It's great. I can't wait until Professor Maybe puts out music. We all know Dan has the dope shit as TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb.

Our friend Arden made teeth shaped cookies. They were delicious. After the show I ended up in Jonas' backyard until 7am, while Jonas and Dan argued about weather or not a specific writer should still have a job after writing terribly sensationalized and consistanly uninformed articles. Me and Lucas made fun of them from the sidelines.

Setlist:
A Cool Breeze, Drift Off, Knives Behind Your Heart, Unfortunate Senator's Son, Parade Day, Tragically Magical, Goose Gone Wild, Soul Love (Bowie), If You Live A Long Life, Good Vibrations, Glowing Element, Uncontrollable Urge (DEVO), (Leave That Attitude) Outside, Rainclouds, Matter of Opinion
