SQuidd Subject A. solo October 9th!!!

just announced!

SQuidd will be playing a solo set with good bud and acoustic punker, Divided Heaven, at the Ship Inn in Milford, NJ  this coming Tuesday night October 9th! The set will run from 10-11pm split between SQuidd and Divided Heaven.

Anyone who’s not familiar with Divided Heaven check link below.  He’s an acoustic punk warrior named Jeff Berman fresh off a European tour and primed to rock you! Originally an east coaster and old friend of SQuidd’s, Jeff is former member of legendary philly punks, the Boils.  He moved to LA a few years back, but since the release of his latest record, Rival Cities, we’ve been seeing a lot more of him again back east. And that rules for us!  TOP SOil played with him in New Brunswick earlier this year and he really got the crowd goin!

Don’t miss it!!!
