What better way to start the week/continue the weekend than our BEST MUSIC POLL AWARDS SHOW going down on MONDAY (the 11th) at the Met. FREE admission, FREE parking, FREE eats, and live performances courtesy of TORN SHORTS, THE BROTHER KITE, SIX STAR GENERAL, and the mighty JUAN DEUCE & FALSIDE headlining! We had a blast last year — hope to see y'all there when doors open at 6 pm. A busy week at the Met rolls on with a strong (and massively loud) lineup on TUESDAY (the 12th) with locals SOUL CONTROL and RAINDANCE supporting SCREAMING FEMALES and CEREMONY; then head back on WEDNESDAY (the 13th) for FALL & BOUNCE and ROUTE .44 (new album out soon!).
