Wormwood Scrubs Breaking Up; Last February 6 at the Firebird (Bluebird)


Thanks to tipster Roy, who passed along a note from Larissa Dalle of the Wormwood Scrubs: The trio is breaking up after one last show in a few weeks at the Firebird (a.k.a. the new Bluebird). Dalle says:

"The dissolution of the band was mutual and friendly. Larissa, Sam, and Jason will all continue to make music and will probably continue to make music together, but in a different guise. It's been five years of building Wormwood Scrubs, and its time has come to pass. You haven't seen the last of us, but you have seen the last of Wormwood Scrubs. Not much drama, I'm afraid, and we're all doing well. Folks can come out to see us one last time on Feb 6 at the new Bluebird."
