MUSICAL GUEST: TORI PARMZ – Local Worcester based poet & songstress TORI PARMZ has just turned 21, so we thought we’d celebrate with some tasty acoustic, soulful, folk singing with someone we hope will be a Gerunder for years to come!  Help us welcome this talented youngster to our stage for the first time ever. If you can’t wait, check out a couple tunes at www.toriparham.bandcamp.com.

Support our local artists!

Speaking of which, we may have a bonus tonight, that depends on you. Attendance has been light lately, maybe ya’ll are holiday shopping. Take a break and come down with us! We have so many high fives and snacks and open mic slots and loneliness. We miss our art friends! For real! Come on down!
