Bonnie “Prince” Billy & The Cairo Gang In-Store May 31st!

Uh, yeah, you read that correctly. Bonnie “Prince” Billy is playing at Sweat and we’re beyond stoked! This free, all-ages event is part a series of shows exclusive to a lucky handful of Florida’s independent record stores. Space is limited, so entrance will be on a first-come, first-served basis. We’ll have more details as the date approaches, but in the meantime here’s some info from Drag City:

“Just before June shuts down the month of May, Bonnie “Prince” Billy & The Cairo Gang will instigate the people of Florida to be free. But not from the silly stage of some paid-entry club, with their foolish drinks and age requirements. No, Bonny & Cairo are people who like to do things for people. That’s why, from the Pensacola panhandle to the beaches of Miami, America’s most famous peninsula has in-stores in store for them!

Yes. Seven Floridian record stores will host free performances open to all. There is no concert after the in-store, there is no secret show to ferret out – just one show per city as free as free can be.”
