The Cabooze is going to start doing outdoor shows, Im guessing inbetween the Joint & The Whiskey. Looks like this show will be the first of the season, should be cool. Where the hell are they going to park all those bikes? See you there

The cabooze has always done outdoor shows, dave pirner did one last year... hopefully the bikers stay away from this one... although it does add some flavor when a 65 year old biker women tries to pick a fight with you for standing next to your friend's bike, at a trampled by turtles show. I would have kicked her ass though...
