Free Energy is tart little rock and roll band from Philly, and they're at RecordBar with the infamous Foxy Shazam on October 21, whose frontman pissed himself onstage last time he was in Lawrence.

Probably you could think of one if you tried hard enough. The thing is, five is a much better number for a list than four. Hopefully you don't feel misled. 

Want to hear those new songs? Oh, you know you got to click that 'More' button.
