2008-12-30: NYEE Edition, the 4th

last tuesday we had the pleasure of visiting and performing at woxy (located in cincinnati, ohio). just before we left, they handed us a burned disc with our performance on it, and we figured we’d put it up so you could enjoy the show anytime you wanted. so here you go… the mugs @ woxy […]
