LOCAL COLOR NEWS!

Garry and Merle are retiring from Local Color at the end of the year. They would love for someone to buy out their interest in Local Color and keep it going! If you know someone who would be interested, Merle would love to talk about this possibility. Otherwise, Local Color as we know it will cease to exist after the first of the year.

  Elise Witt and Mick Kinney  

 It's official, Elise and Mick will bring their marvelous magical mix of musical madness for one more show at Local Color! Elise is the voice of springtime, cool and witty and sprinkling fairy dust everywhere she goes.

Be sure to make this show (you'll be glad you did). Doors open at 5:30; please come for dinner between 5:30 and 6:30, so we can get you seated and served before the music starts promptly at 7PM (the Something Else! Trio will play a short set).
