April is a busy show month for us and we hope to see you at a gig. We’ll be playing at The Mill Tavern April 4 (10pm) and James Street Pub April 11 (10pm); both are free admission cover gigs and we have some new cover songs to debut. If you really want an Arms fix though (and why wouldn’t you?!), come to our April 18 Good Friday show. It’s at Zaphod Beeblebrox and advanced tickets are only $5 here. Music starts at 8pm and features Stevie and the Musskrats, with Ambrosia Famine headlining. We’ll be in the middle spot, playing a great originals set around 9pm.
