Come on out to the December edition of our monthly blues house party! This will be a charity event: our DJs are donating their time, and all proceeds will go to the Northside Achievement Zone, or NAZ. http://northsideachievement.org/

$5 at the door as usual, and there will be a jar for extra donations to NAZ if you feel so inclined.

A 30 minute drop-in lesson from 8:30-9:00 is included in admission. DJ'd music from 9pm-1am!

All our parties are BYOB. *We do card.* Anyone participating in or facilitating underaged drinking will be asked to leave.

See you there!
