Weekenders 05/31 – 06/3

Plenty of opportunity to get weird this weekend!

Thursday, May 31st

BA Johnston, the Ketamines, Microdot, and the Vibrating Beds!! I first heard the Ketamines via their LP at CKUW, and have been hooked ever since, and B.A. shows are notoriously wild. I’m pretty pumped. This is sure to be a great show. OK, I’LL STOP SO THAT YOU CAN GO CHANGE WHATEVER YOU NEED TO CHANGE IN ORDER TO COME TONIGHT!!!!! GO!!!!!

Doors at 9, show is at 10. $10 gets you in. -Victoria King

The doors of 290 McDermot Ave open at 9pm this Friday when you give them the magic number – $7. – Adrienne Yeung
