Some blurbs about the Cartel / Hit The Lights tour:
-Last night, Cartel played their first acoustic set because Kevin, the drummer, had to head home for the night to attend his brother's graduation. The band played all of Chroma (give or take) with the exception of "Q" and "A".
-Hit The Lights' singer, Colin, has strep throat so the band may need to drop off of a few shows. Expect details on that soon.
