Remember when we told you that Pleasant Grove frontman Marcus Striplin was doing just a couple local shows at the beginning of the month? Looks like that changed, as his two Bolsa engagements turned into a standing Tuesday and Wednesday gig for all of August, as well as a show at the Barley House tomorrow with Yours For Now.
So if you can't catch him tonight or tomorrow, you'll have at least two more chances next week at Bolsa. But at this rate, who knows how many more dates he'll add? Maybe he'll rethink his move to Brooklyn and stick around town.--Jesse Hughey
