Capital Capers and Elsewhere Escapades June 6th-June 12th

Anais Mitchell - The Sugar Club, June 7th

I swore to all the deviled demons in the sky and beneath the dirt that I would not miss Anais Mitchell the next time she returned to Ireland. Well the time and place of reckoning is nigh - Thursday, 7th June in The Sugar Club to be precise. Well it looks like I am going to be dragged to some fiery depths as once again I am destined to miss the creator of the 2010 G-Man album of the year (click here to recap). Some day Anais, some day...
