Featuring local band The Gated Community

Doors open: 7pm / Music: 7:30pm
All are welcome - Admission by donation
The Gated Community is a local country/bluegrass/Americana band with rick influences. Their repertoire is almost completely original, but also includes a large number of heavily reworked covers. The songs address the four universal, Platonic themes of love, art, politics and science. The instrumentation is eclectic, sometimes accenting the electrical, sometimes the mechanical, sometimes the petrochemical.
