Hey, Wilmington! We are playing the inaugural Downtown Brew-Fest next Saturday, 8/12. It's $35 if you want to sample a bunch of beers, but you can also pay $10 for a DD ticket which gets you unlimited non-alcoholic drinks and access to the music. It's our first big hometown show in a while, so hope to see you there!
