The Scissors Return To Brauerhouse.

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.
