Go See Animal Tropical Friday Night.

If you haven’t seen ANIMAL TROPICAL live yet, then rejoice and come out because they will be taking the stage this Friday at The Vagabond!

What you haven’t heard, is that Sweat and The Vagabond have teamed up with IronForge Press to make a sick silk-screened limited edition poster for the show!
