Bo and the Locomotive, Magic City, Yankee Racers, Old Lights and Pretty Little Empire

7 p.m. Friday, December 21. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue.



Sure, various numerological formulae and astronomical alignments have been proposed in relation to this date, but I doubt any Mayanist scholars predicted this killer bill. Let's say that maybe the world doesn't end. That won't prevent Off Broadway's inhabitants from undergoing a positive spiritual transformation during Magic City's set. I've seen it happen on a nondescript Wednesday night in south city. Or say the world does end. Wouldn't you wanna spend that moment dancing along to Old Lights or being comforted by Justin Johnson's (Pretty Little Empire) calming voice? It may end up being the end of the world as we know it, but those at Off Broadway Friday night will feel fine regardless.

Bo Knows Beeman: Bo and the Locomotive is almost done recording its next album at Native Sound Studios with David Beeman of Old Lights. Don't be surprised to hear new songs.
