Notable --The band's next show will be a 35-minute acoustic set at Brass Monkey Saloon. Wade said the band is looking forward to shaving their sound.
Quotable --"It's kind of fun to break our songs down acoustically, because we do a lot of stuff with effects," Wade said. "When you break it down to the acoustics, you get to hear the base melodies that underlie everything."
