Dive Bar 100th Thursday Music Night

By Peter Fellows

Thursday, June 11,  join Dive Bar patrons for “Dive Bar Thursday Music” night!  This isn’t just any night, folks.  The Dive Bar is celebrating its 100th “Thursday Music” night.  Just like all the other shows, the Dive Bar isn’t slouching on the music they share with you.  Being featured that night is an eight-piece band consisting of members of The Delta Generators, Akashic Record, The Hurricane Horns and many more.  Not only will you have the chance to enjoy the “band of the evening,” but the Dive Bar will also be presenting the grand opening of Punky’s Haberdash, the new creative boutique that’s definitely worth checking out.  The fun begins at 7:00.  Be there to check out the great music and the innovative new line.
