The Party of Helicopters was legendary during Akron’s Lime Spider era but sadly they’ve gont the way of the dodo. Catch the Kent band at this one-night-only reunion show Saturday.
10. Sat. 11/20 @ Annabell’s, Akron
Down and dirty, good old fashion rock & roll is what you’ll get at Annabell’s Saturday when The Demon Beat invade. Black Keys fans should dig the three piece assault that swells from grungy minimalism to raging howls of blues rock.
