Ditty Twisters

At Berbati's Pan

Cooked up by the ever-admirable folks at NARAL, tonight's event celebrates the anniversary of Roe Vs. Wade--and with the way things are looking in Washington D.C., we might want to party like it's 1999. Featured tonight are the Ditty Twisters, a perfectly capable (if not entirely ground breaking) six piece that marries it's less-than-subtle sense of humor with a palatable touch of Rockabilly.
