Pleasure Curses

If you have not heard of Pleasure Curses by now….They are a duo (Jahn Alexander & Evan Maxwell) based out of DC/VA who take influence in new wave post-punk, synth pop and early electronic dance music. They met while attending the same summer camp when they were 10 years old and did not see each other again until a chance meeting a decade later.  

Tickets for the show on Friday, March 22 will be available at the door (9pm) for $8 and it’s also 21+.
