Oh, YESSS! Another Beer Week event.

Seriously, what more do you need to know? Well, okay, here’s a little more. Tonight the Contino Band from Las Vegas graces the Torch Club stage. According to their Reverbnation page, the group has crafted a lively and distinctive mixture of blues, Americana, rockabilly, and zydeco. Sounds great to me! You?

Howell Devine tonight! Plus the continuation of Beer Week!

Check this out, it’s a return engagement for the Howell Devine trio tonight. Do you enjoy down home blues? How about some raw slide guitar and a hot rhythm section playing the sounds of the old south? Throw in a little harp and you’ve got something that will really get you going. Howell Devine is not just your run-of-the-mill bar band. If you missed them last time, don’t you do that again! Get yourself primed during happy hour with more of the Torch Club special, Lagunitas IPA for $3.50 per pint  from 5:30-7:30, then hang for some great music.

First the news.
