April 11th, 2010 Keeps on Growing

Franco Nero would like to thank their new found friends from the community at large.  We originally started out the night to announce our first EP release, and through this process have come in contact with a strong and helpful community.  In that spirit we would like to welcome Yogoman Burning Band to the bill on April 11th.  They are on a WestCoast tour and will be playing Monday April 12th at The KnockOut ( Franco Nero will play  a Warm-Up Set ) and Wednesday April 14th at Hotel Utah

Guerrilla Hi-Fi
In the case of Guerilla Hi-Fi, sometimes what you see is not what you get. Close your eyes and you'd swear you were catching a Jamaican dub band sometime in the early '70s, but look up onstage and it's a tightly packed group of bespectacled white guys, most of them known players in the weirdo improv scene.
