They say the only constant in life is change. Magnolia Mountain has been through many changes over the years, and is about to experience another. Not because of bad blood, drama, "musical differences", or anything negative, (just...life, really), the band will soon bid a bittersweet farewell to Melissa English, Todd Drake, and Victor Strunk. The core of the band remains intact, and the Magnolia Mountain Trio and Bulletville will continue to perform in the interim. That said, you have only three more chances to enjoy the current lineup before the band takes a (hopefully short) but indefinite hiatus. The show at Mr. Pitiful's, especially, is being planned as a final blow-out celebration. We hope you can come out and celebrate some great people and great musical memories with us this month.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15 - MOTR Pub (with Shivering Timbers)


WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27 - Mr. Pitiful's (with Pike 27)
