L.A. Benefit Show for Wounded Warrior Project Sept 17th

We’re proud to announce an intimate and very special benefit performance in our hometown of Los Angeles in support of the Wounded Warrior Project, an extremely dedicated organization that recognizes and aids members of the military who have sustained injuries or illnesses in the service.

The show will take place at the Troubadour in West Hollywood on Monday, September 17th. It’s a small space that only fits about 500 people, so we thought we’d take the rare opportunity to perform new songs from our as-of-yet unfinished forthcoming album for the very first time. Yes, it’ll be that kind of night. We hope you can join us.. And as such, we ask that you leave all recording devices (including cell phones) in your car—as no recording will be allowed inside the venue.
