Crashing the Blowout 

Wow! Friday night was quite the night for White Shag. Since we were quite bitter about not getting picked for the Metro Times Blowout, we took it upon ourselves to rent a U-Haul truck, park across from Small's and rock out. It was a success. Too bad it was raining, but regardless, the audience stayed and watched. After that it was off to see Carjack at Kelly's which was also a blast as it always is. We've got some more tricks up our sleeve for the next coming months so be on the lookout for White Shag!!!
