“Greetings, fellow tired, hungry, and poor Americans!
This Thanksgiving, Petworth is giving music fans something to be thankful for: in light of these tough economic times, Petworth has employed its superior powers of persuasion to arrange for a musical event of unrivaled value.
Economic Downturn Show – 3 bands, $4
featuring Petworth, with Gist and The Andalusians
Wednesday, November 26th @ 9pm
Performing at the Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW
For those of you addicted to Facebook, RSVP online and invite all your friends. This will be our first headlining show (not counting shows in band members’ basements…), and we’ll making a recording of the performance, so we can really use your support!
Plus, the show is only $4. All the cool kids will be there. And you don’t have to go to work the next day, because it’s Thanksgiving. And, if you haven’t been to one of our shows in a while, there are new songs you haven’t heard yet. You can’t afford not to go.”
