Mankato Eventsmankato events Savoy Jordan Carr
When: Sat Jul 26, 2014 10pm to 11:59pm
CDT



Where: Savoy Bar & Grill, 526 S Front St, Mankato, Minnesota 56001, United States

On July 26th, 2014 one year will have passed since I finally released my debut album Reinventing The Dumbass, which took roughly 5 years to write, 1 1/2 years to record, 8 months in jail to ponder on and 3 months to mix and master...

The album release show at Red Sky was one of the best nights of my life. If you were there, and at the after party, which I'm still paying off, you know.

So, in order to commemorate this milestone in my life, I will be playing a solo set at Savoy in Mankato, MN on Saturday, July 26th. I'll be joined by fellow friends James Artist McAdams and Chris Shotliff.

Don't get me wrong, I understand the cheese in celebrating a release that is only a year old. Really, this is just a nice way to grab a few extra bucks before heading out on tour with Evasive Maneuver the following week. So, come on down and get drunk with us.

If you'd like to kick a few bucks my way to help with tour bus gas and convenience store dogs, feel free to download my album at whichever price you feel appropriate here: http://1badboyjordancarr.bandcamp.com/ and feel free to follow me on twitter https://twitter.com/jordancarrlton
and like my facebook page: #1 Bad Boy

Thanks so much, #1s!
