BRINGING SANTA TO MEET SATAN

We begin the new year of our lord 2019 with a fun show on Saturday January 12th at Beat Kitchen here in sunny Chicago with our friends from DC SWOLL (Matt Dowling from Deleted Scenes and The Effects) and our new Chicago friends CANTER. We’re starting work on a retrospective of our 15 year existence and I think it’ll tickle you in all the right spots. yep, that one too. Doors @ 8. show at 9. $10, 21+.

THE BEAUTIFUL SOUTH

10603617_10203548410283110_1274636846991740698_nthere’s a wise old adage that says “never play in Florida”. but here at TLAT HQ, we brazenly throw the baby out with the bathwater and spit straight into the wind of logic and will proudly follow any fool off of any cliff. with that said, we’re really excited to announce these dates that cover Florida and much of the Beautiful South. please turn to page 436 in your hymnals and join us in singing “How Great Thou Art” while flying off said cliff. Amen.
