In case you haven't yet heard, our friend Scott Dunkerly of X! Records fame has booked all the Thursdays at the Lager House for the rest of this month to promote the release of the Shiftless Decay: New Sounds of Detroit compilation that's coming out soon...on X! Records, of course. Two bands that appear on the comp will play two sets each every Thursday. For FREE. That is, no cover. Can't beat that price. The series kicks off tonight.

Here's the lineup:

Feb. 5th -- Frustrations, the Mahonies
Feb 12th -- Tyvek, Johnny Ill Band
Feb 19th -- Human Eye, Heroes & Villains
Feb 26th -- Terrible Twos, Fontana

Terrible Twos: Two bands; two the Lager House on the 26th!
