Chaos to some, and a sonic paradise to others... however you categorize DD/MM/YYYY's music, there's not much dispute about their energetic live shows. Tonight's extra special, considering it's their actual CD release for Black Square -- included with the $10 cover. With Metz and Black Feelings.

FASHION | Stylehog.com's Style Swap
