There will be two sets between 10pm and 12 midnight. Acts at Two Boots get paid a percentage of the cash register at the bar during their performance time (10 to 12), so if you want to really help us out, buy food or drink while the music is playing. There is no cover at the door, and there is no minimum food or drink purchase.
