December 21, 2014 from 5am to 10am
We meet at 5am at Dunkin Donuts on the corner of Howard and Western. We ride south with our lights on  to Constellation for a 6am show where two amazing drummer/percussionists create a sonic environment to  help us cope with the shortest days of the year.  We will get breakfast after the show and then head home where many of us will need a nap. If you are not coming from the north you can meet us at the show. Purchase tickets ($25) in advance at …See More
