My sweets! We know that the diseases are rampant and we sincerely hope that you are managing alright. We are tentatively trepidatiously tantalizingly tiptoeing forward with tomorrow’s open mic! Come out if your heart says YAS and your body feels 💯. We’ve got a lot of TGOM news up our puffy sleeves so FEAR NOT, there will be many more opportunities to come out and play. Oxbow Brewing Company makes delicious beer and it is niceeeee and spacious in there. We’ll have professional sound peeps and will be dressed 🆙 like there’s no tomorrow, because maybe there is no tomorrow? Sorry, I’ve been surrounded by doomers lately. Get there early to get on the list. Slide in the dms with questions LOVE YOU 😍
