Indigo Dubloon8 hrs"UPDATE: Ridgewood Elks has decided our show is not something they feel 
comfortable hosting so we are moving it to the Warren American Legion. 
The legion has been hosting punk and hardcore shows for as long as I can
 remember and I honestly think it will be a better fit for us in the 
end. This show WILL most likely sell out so get there as early as 
possible! Thanks to Joe Allocco and everyone at the legion for making sure this show happens, and for being supportive of what we do for so many years.”
