Garage Night @ The Hazelwood
Tuesday, May 25th

CMRTYZ is heading off to Europe by way of New York City on their Psychadelic Summer tour, and tonight's Garage Night is set to be a combination dance party and farewell bash. You in?

If you're a Ballard local or bar-goer and/or you read this blog, you know that Blackbird's favorite watering hole, The Hazelwood, has been hosting a monthly garage rock party with the boys of CMRTYZ every last Tuesday of the month since way back in 2009. Much drinking and dancing has taken place in those months, and tonight is sure to follow suit. If you're going to be in Ballard this evening, swing by and help send the CMRTYZ gang off in style.
