Points North September and November 2014


SADLY,

"Hi all - sorry to have to post this message, but at one point we were booked to play as part of the amazing Soundz of NorCal benefit show this weekend, Nov. 8, at the Starlite Lounge in Sacramento. Unfortunately, due to a schedule conflict, we will not be appearing (though we encourage everyone that was planning on coming to attend anyway, for a lineup of stellar bands, including our friends in Pushing the Sun, put on by the amazing Lisa Walters and Jessica Burke).

But we've received a few inquiries about the show, so we just wanted to make sure to get the word out that we were no longer on the bill.

But we WILL make it to Sacramento soon, we promise!"


Eric B

 November 8, 2014 Starlite Lounge 1517 21st Street Sacramento, CA 9 PM How in the world have we never played Sacramento before? Finally that drought comes to an end, thanks to Soundz of Norcal - we'll be at new hot spot Starlite Lounge, where we will be joined by some of Sacramento's finest - Ancient, In the Silence, and Restrayned.
