The band was named one of the “Top Ten Bands to Watch” by CityPaper, awarded the 2015 and 2016 Roc Awards Best Band and completed two successful European tours. The Black Lounge will also feature a performance by Anomalous People and music by DJ Maestro. Dinner will be included.
Tickets for the event are free and available at the Schine Box Office.
