David Kan says:

California Feetwarmers at the Bungalow in SM tonight 9-11!

Brian says:

Thanks David!!!

Brian

bmchoo says:

No Happy Feet @ Joe’s on the 2nd, per their facebook post saying they’re “off for the holidays, returning January 9th”. Looking for places to dance on the 2nd but it seems there are few :(

Brian says:

Thanks for the head’s up! My calendar will sync up automatically with Joe’s calendar on Jan 1st. It should be updated by then.

Brian

Brian says:

According to the Happy Feet Mondays page, they’re off for the holidays, as you said. But, according to Joe’s Bar’s website, the California Feetwarmers are playing:
http://joesgreatbar.com/calendar

Maybe someone else besides Lorenzo is organizing it.

Brian

Brian says:

Actually, re-reading it, it’s DJ Patrick Morrison from the California Feetwarmers, not the Feetwarmers themselves playing live….

Brian

richardstarr says:

Atomic has finally listed doing NYE on the website, but not apparently on FB.

Brian says:

Thanks Richard! I updated the calendar and my NYE article.

Best,
Brian

Hanh Nguyen says:

Is there a live band at Clifton’s tonight? I tried calling but couldn’t get anyone on the line

Best,
Brian

Hanh Nguyen says:
