P.A.N. Shop and Toepfer House are the closest things to house parties/hall shows that I have seen in years. I miss the days of filling a VFW or a friends house and having bands shake the walls, but P.A.N. and Toepfer are bringing it back and doing it better. They seem to get great bands to agree to play and are able to charge low prices and let you bring your own beer. The money you save going to a one of these shows instead of a bar is motivation enough for us. You get the experience of a show without the high bar tab at the end of the night.
This Friday they are having Ma Jolie and Cayetana come into town from Philly to play with Flaks, Cheapshow, and Fires in Japan from Michigan. The show is only $5 at the door and, as always, it's BYOB. Bring a 6 pack, relax, and enjoy the night. P.A.N. Shop is located at 22641 Van Dyke in Warren and all ages are welcome.
