Grand Re-opening w/ Ladyscissors! - $6This will be the grand re-opening party to celebrate Mother Fool's recovery from their car crash last fall.

It makes sense. Stephanie Rearick (drums) is one of Mother Fool's owners. And, Brent George (guitar) was the contractor/carpenter on the reconstruction project as well as being the artist for the new doorway mosaic. Yeah.

Come on down and check out Mother Fool's new digs and enjoy the Ladyscissors' sound.
