Despite some of the recent major changes around Colour Revolt with departures of key members and whatnot, I still enjoy the band and their tunes.  I’ll be supporting that sound by stopping in at Mohawk on Friday night for a set by the band.  If nothing else, you gotta know these guys can rock some faces in the live setting.  Your opening support will be provided by locals White White Lights.  Sounds like a good time to me!
