STRIVE LIFE STAGE SCHEDULE
Friday | 7:45pm
Silver Warehouse is a cult of 5 college wannabes who can’t seem to nail down a genre… or a lead vocalist. They like to slap snazzy riffs over compelling chord progressions and whine about the trivial tragedies we endure growing up. If only they could learn how to dress, maybe they could turn this music thing into a living.

Folk and Americana music tell all kinds of great stories, but every now and then it's great to turn it up with a simple shake of the butt to the Palm Court Strut!
