We had such a great time playing Rockit last April that we thought we’d do it again. Come out and see us for FREE on Thursday, September 1st at Rockit Wrigley.
The Brauerhouse burned down in 2008 leaving a huge void in the suburbs for live music. Brauerhouse was home for The Scissors and a wide variety of punk/rock/metal/ska and rap acts. We’ve been waiting to hear if Steve would rebuild.
Brauerhouse Lombard opened a few months ago and The Scissors are returning on June 24th with The Shakes. It’s going to be one hell of a night. Don’t miss it.
