Bluegrass. Folk. Blistering tempo. What’s your pick? Just head up to Fitzgerald’s on Wednesday night and you can answer the question for yourself. The turtles are harmless mostly. Don’t worry that you’ll be caught under foot, but you will be ushered into an upbeat mood pretty quickly. Just check out this video for “Wait So Long.”

Oh My! Pocket Pies, Eatsie Boys and Good Dog Hot Dogs will be serving up their specialty foods. St. Arnold Brewing CompanyBeaver’s and My TX Spirits will be bringin’ the drink. Look for entertainment by Extra Life Houston. This seems like more a win for those taking part than those benefiting from the attendees’ generosity. I guess that’s win/win.

Thanks for listing the Tweet Drive! Unfortunately, this listing has an incorrect address for Caroline Collective. We are located at 4820 Caroline Street, 77004.

Also, Caroline Collective is not the venue for the Honky Tonk Blood screening.
