Club Passim
Full disclosure: We have no idea what to expect from a band called The Bigfoot Research Organization. According to Passim’s website, the band “is a unique and as-yet-unclassified musical group.” They site goes on to say, “A BRO show offers an ideal opportunity to encounter this cryptomusicological phenomenon in its natural, nocturnal state.” I mean, hey, that sounds kind of cool.
