Music News – Put on your dancin’ shoes!

February 27th, 2009 by Temple City Tribune

THE HUBCAPS packed the house at Cafe 322 last Saturday night, and after a certain 1st grade teacher rearranged the furniture, we were dancing in the aisles ’til the very last note was played! It was Keith the bass player’s birthday party, and being the friendly face behind the counter at the Bottle Shop by day makes him a pretty popular guy in this town! The celebration continues this Saturday, Jan. 31st, as THE HUBCAPS play the BUCCANEER LOUNGE down the street. Keith and guitar player Josh are pictured here with me. Last week they had a guest drummer, but Tom will be back for this weekend’s gig.
