6th year begging for beer at Rogue. No clue what I’m talking about? Read the cardboard: “Songs 4 Pints” You send up the Guinness and we send out the songs. Traditional Irish music. Funny, raucous, sad, somber. Be warned: if you let us get too lucid we might bore you with history.

We’re UHS students; we like music. We also like video games. Come see what happens when we put our minds, talents, and interests together. It’s not another bake sale! We aren’t selling you anything except a ticket to see the show. It’s also not just another concert or recital. Want to support your local youth? Support us! We’re fun! (This show is not officially affiliated with University High School. Resemblance to any UHS student, real or fictional, is purely coincidental. If this were an actual UHS production it would not be in the Rogue. This is ONLY a test… er… show.)
