Do you remember the Great Cover Up? It hasn’t been that long, yet, has it? It looks like the Cover Up, created and made popular by Kings Barcade, is finally coming back. Chris Tamplin at Tir Na Nog, who runs Local Beer, Local Band, has been talking about it for a while… but in 2009, after a two-year hiatus, it will now be a reality.
Put the weekend of Jan 30th-Feb 1st on your calendar for the big event. Email Chris at email@example.com if your band wants to fill a space in the weekend. $5 at the door. 5-6 bands per night and the lineup is halfway finished. All money goes to a local charity. Oh the memories… may they start pouring in and, after February, continue to be made.
Love, Justin Timberlake, Haulin’ Oats, Sade, Three Dog Night, Weezer, Minor Threat, Steve Miller Band and more….oh how the days of Kings Barcade are so missed in this part of town.

Below is the November flyer for Local Beer, Local Band… which I neglected to post in time.
