Get Off My Lawn: Vilification Tennis Retires

Vilification Tennis has been around for a while now and we are getting tired of you crazy kids. We're going to do things the way we did them in the old days when we had to walk uphill in a snowstorm just to get to your mom. Both ways! Please note - we are not actually retiring. It's just a show theme. If you want to bring us retirement gifts, though, we won't turn them down.

Friday, August 16 at 10:00pm (doors at 9:30) $15/$12 in advance, with Fringe button, or CONvergence badge
