First up tonight at the Oriental, ManeLine will unveil its latest effort, & Sew Its Seams, in the company of its compadres, 3 the Hardway, 9th Street Choir, Infinite Mindz, FOE, Kano, Venus Cruz and Dizy Pixl. And then tomorrow night at the Larimer Lounge, Only Thunder will debut its excellent new disc, Lower Bounds, on a bill that also features Mustangs and Madras, the Archive and Solar Bear.
