Annnnd if you want to see, y'know, ACTUAL rock-n-roll music, come down to the Jackpot on Sunday night and catch Chicago's WHITE MYSTERY. They've been blowing the country for the past couple of years and it's about time the midwest got hip. Lawrence's own DRY BONNET and PALE HEARTS will man the opening duties.
