Live @ Subterranean Wednesday, March 30 7:30pm

We were just hangin in the woods next to a stump one day, and mused that blowing out the Empty Bottle a few months back was fun, so we decided to hook up with the kids at Audio Tree for a set alongside their premier act, Kellen & Me, along with these cool cats called the Minneapolis Henrys, whom hail from Chicago.  Those who show will get a sneaker at a few new tracks from Antony’s forthcoming LP, slated for release this summer.  Also keep an eye out for our Audio Tree Live set coming shortly.  Cheers, E.
