Hey everybody, just a quick note from Phix-land to let you know about some things we've got coming up.
First of all, we have added a Denver show this Friday night (aka tomorrow), at Cervante's Masterpiece Ballroom. It is a post-Mike & Leo/Mule/moe. show, so if you're still spinning after Red Rocks, spin on by! We e-mailed Mike to tell him about the show and invite him to stop by...we're not holding our breath, but you never know...it's happened before! The Cervante's show is, of course, in addition to our show TONIGHT at Quixote's True Blue (now right next door to Cervante's). This is the continuation of our monthly residency at the new Quixote's. If you haven't checked the place out, we encourage you to do so - it looks better than ever!

As always, we want to thank everybody for coming out and supporting us. Without you to share this wonderful music with, we'd be...well, we wouldn't be here at all!
See you soon!
