A Vacation Close to Home

 "We haven't played here in 10 years. Let's party."
- BC, 4/17/2015

Unofficially, the last time GM played was 12 years ago (almost to the date). Just found this beauty in the arguyves:

 I remember Bill being cool enough to get me in Sully's at the time, as I was a wee candyass 19 year old. I wasn't nearly hip enough to appreciate this B.L.O>Alibi (titled "Bunk" on CD)>Post>B.L.O.  I'll throw this show on if there's enough demand (i.e. if one person asks me). 
In their return to Sully's last Friday night, the band brought the heat (and Mercier) for a cover heavy show. Setlist and videos below.
