One of the better overlooked groups of the grunge era, Lawrence's Paw made a name for themselves with aggressive yet melodic albums like 1993's "Dragline" and 1995's "Death to Traitors." Lackluster sales prompted A&M Records to drop the band, and for awhile they dropped off the face of the earth. Singer Mark Hennessy and guitarist Grant Fitch resurfaced in 2000 with new recruits Jesse Larson and Jason Magierowski and a new album titled "Home Is a Strange Place." Eight years later, they're reuniting once again to play songs from all three albums. This is a bona-fide, blue-ribbon chance to see a local band of historic significance pull out all the stops and go for broke (sans stagediving).
