The folks at the Granada Theater must've been pleased as pie on Friday night, having sold out of tickets for its fifth anniversary celebration an all.
Of course, it helps that the venue had some local favorites on the bill to help draw in the crowds: Openers Danny Balis and Macon Greyson both used the date as a way to celebrate their new releases, and to headline the ordeal, the theater was able to call in a favor to Slobberbone, who, random reunions throughout the past year or not, remains a big draw atop a bill.
For those who were there and want to relive the madness--and even to those just curious about what they might have missed--point your clicker right here and check out Dylan Hollingsworth's slideshow recap of the night.
