The bitch is back and she has even less fucks than when she left.

All are welcome to join Caroline Smith and special guest Sophia Eris as they DJ an evening to shamelessly celebrate the Ladies with favorite cuts from The Bee Gees to Beyoncé, Jameson shots to champagne flutes, and everything in between.

Hailing from Iowa, this husband & wife duo spend more time on the road then some musicians half their age.  Their take on the traditiuonal blues is unique and authentic at the same time. Their sound takes you down to a juke joint in Mississippi over 100 years ago, where there was no air conditioning, the beer was warm and the songs are bathed in mud."  -Jody Hendrix - Little Class Records
