    Posted on May 20th, by irisrecords in Uncategorized. No Comments

    Join Steve (Gritzan) and Steve (Silvestri) of Iris Records every first Sunday of the month at their favorite local watering hole for the best in whatever the hell they think might be cool to hear on a Sunday night at Lucky’s. Same names, different generation, ALL VINYL. What could possibly go wrong?

    Sundays are Industry Nights at Lucky’s, so if you work for a restaurant or bar, bring some proof to the bartender and enjoy half-off drinks! For everyone else, drinks are nice and cheap anyway.

    Big thanks to “Dancing” Tony over at (The) Rock-it Docket for helping to put this together. Don’t miss out on a single cool event…follow him and the team that “run fun” in JC:
