A big brass band is coming to your town. How could you stay home?

Do you like marching bands? Because seriously, who doesn't? I know one Hampdenite whose dream it is to have a marching band at her funeral. Hawker keeps telling her to get the marching band for her wedding or some other celebration that will happen while she's LIVING and can enjoy it, and this weekend, that Hampdenite gets to live a little of her dream.

A big brass band is coming to The Avenue tomorrow night!

And there's going to be monkeys! (Well, at least Chop Chop the falling apart chimp is going to be there.)

What Cheer? Brigade is playing at the Lo-Fi Social Club tomorrow (Friday, February 15,) and before the show, they're coming to Hampden to play a free show outside Atomic Books from 5-6 p.m. What Cheer? Brigade is a 19-piece renegade brass band from Providence, RI, featuring artist William Schaff (best known for the cover illustrations he's done for Okkervil River, Godspeedyou Black Emperor, and others.)

At the Lo-Fi Social Club later that night, What Cheer? Brigade will be playing with Secret Crush Society, which is fronted by Hampdenite and marching band lover Lisa!
