Friday, February 27th – Wet Brain / Big Mouth / Curse / Hive Bent / Natural Velvet
5th Dimension, DIY show (unspecified) at 8:00 PM – $11 with 7″

I’m sure if you don’t know where 5th Dimension is, with some clever Facebooking you can figure it out. It’s a DIY space and it’s in a warehouse, I’ll give ya that. Wet Brain and Natural Velvet or two of my favorite punk rock bands in Bmore. Even in February, this show will get sweaty. All of these killer bands will be featuring on the Girl Problems Split 7″ that you get at the door for just a few more bucks. Support local music.
