Spottiswoode + Menewa, The Bomb Shelter

Show your love for The Bomb Shelter as it says farewell tonight. They showed some love to us by letting us borrow some furniture for our anniversary party on March 14.

Spottiswoode and his Enemies are on their way back from SXSW and have decided to make a pit stop in the Magic City to help The folks at The Bomb Shelter say farewell. They’ll be joined by local band Menewa.
