Local H with All Eyes West at Record Bar 10 PM $14
Local H needs no introduction, but I’ll try to give ‘em one anyway. One of those bands that exploded with the alternative/grunge scene in the 90s that never really seemed to go away, Local H have earned the title of a legendary band from their incessant touring and quality output. Everyone’s heard “that song” but the truth is, Local H has so much more to offer.
