Guy Alone

This song makes me want to flip a car over and set it on fire"
-Brett Calabrese, 3/8/2012

The first "Guy Alone" set of 2012 was everything you'd expect from an acoustic Boru's show: extended loop jams, lots of guest appearances, and general debauchery from the regulars.
Needless to say, it was another Thursday night success.
