DMH Summer Update

Hello friends!

We’re launching not one but THREE band offspring to college in August, so by choice our summer is light on gigs.

We do have one coming up next month in Arlington, VA with our friends from the Guillotine Theater. Please consider coming out to Lubber Run Amphitheater on July 13 if you can; we’ll be doing our Civil War Songs and Letters show that night.

Know that we are working on new stuff, booking shows for the fall and winter now, and even preparing for our 10th Anniversary party/gig at a venue near [some of] you. More details on that as we hammer them down.
