Oh – em – gee, local party planner group Howdy Gals has done it again with another Far Out Wednesday residency line-up, featuring longtime AMM favorite, the OG BB’s Big Bill, and a new badass AMM fave lamenting those damned “Dead Fish” dead moves of all the dummies, Clarence James. It’s all going down tonight, Wednesday July 21, at The Far Out Lounge and Stage, 8504 S. Congress Ave. And it’s not only a show but a specially-curated Howdy Gals event with local vendors and EVERYTHING BUT BASEBALL vibes brought to you by your friendly neighborhood Flyer Club (a side project by your friends of TC Superstar).

Doors open at 6 p.m. And, while being fully-vaccinated is truly invigorating, please remember to bring your mask to help protect your fellow music lovers. Cheers and hearts.
