Mages “SEROTONIN SAILS” EP Release Show


By Kristine Volovsek

Join Mages for their “SEROTONIN SAILS” EP Release Show Saturday, December 29 at 7th street entry. Described as having “a sense of unity, weightlessness, and mind-bending nirvana”, Mages mystify audiences with a sweet and soulful indie-folk-rock sound, reminiscent of bands like Belle and Sebastian. Rupert Angeleyes and Love Lake will also be playing. The show is 18+ and only $5. Doors at 8pm.
