The Sleeper Pins hit Milwaukee and make their debut appearance at the Art Bar!  This is a really cool venue with a tasty vibe and tons of local art adorning the walls and for sale to the public.  Great booze selection, seating, and atmosphere.  Swallows also join the bill and bring their blend of bluesy americana to the stage afterward.  A great night at a great place!
