The homie Mike Czech is in town from San Diego and we’re doing a string of gigs together this weekend at Koots. MIke is part of the Sleeping Giant crew and has a radio show syndicated in more than 60 cities. He is also a bona fide beer snob (I snapped this pic last night while sampling libations at the Bear Tooth) and this week is the Beer and Barley Wine Festival. Coincidence? I think it’s just a sign that this week will be cracking.

As a hat tip to Mike’s vintage Rawkus hoodie, here’s an oldie but goodie from the label.
