113. Space Owl, Johnny and the Moles, WilloW, Goodtime Hustle
I’m impressed by this lineup. St. Paddy’s is traditionally a big booze-it-up night—and Substation has enough bands on lock to ensure NO ONE who makes it till close will make it to work the following Monday! Headliners Space Owl will be laying down an easy vibin’ Grateful Dead tribute set, but only after swingers Johnny and the Moles, who will hopefully BRING THE TUBA, swing their swangin' and Goodtime Hustle have played their mid-tempo, melodic “folkadelic con-fusion.” Oh, tonight is also “introducing”—like, I think it’s their first show—the band WilloW. Good luck, boozy groovers!!! MIKE NIPPER
