Bear Colony

Remember that Bear Colony album release party we told you about earlier this week? It’s happening on Friday at George’s. The band will have vinyl and CD copies of the 13-track album, Soft Eyes for $15/$10 each. Silent Waits the Archer and Friday Maybe Saturday will open the show.

There’s a rock show at the The Lightbulb Club as well. Local bands Thunderlizards, The Chads, Wolfwhistle and Shook Yang will perform. The cover is $3, and you can probably get one of these new Thunderlizards stickers featuring original art by Nick Shoulders.
