Performance Picks: Western Wildness, 2-Year Anniversaries, Bits N’ Buddy Holly



Wednesday With Westerns!
Wednesday August 24, 7 pm at City Reliquary; $7.

If you have the gall to come in a Western-themed costume (god forbid nobody mistake you for a lost Republican on the way there), you’ll be greeted with a free shot of tequila or whiskey.
