Album Release!!!! 

Today is the day! Come join us at Lucky Luke Brewing Co. in Palmdale, CA at 8 p.m. to celebrate and have your first chance to get your hands on a copy of Bridges Burned & Other Such Disasters and some other great merch. It will all be available in the store tab here, but people at the show get first dibs!



Music in the Park 

Next month Black Eye Affair will be taking part in the City of Palmdale's Music in the Park program, by providing live music at Domenic Massari Park on August 3rd. It is very exciting to have a local municipality reach out to bring music, culture, and art to its public spaces. Kudos Palmdale! Make sure you come out and support the community, the arts, and of course... Black Eye Affair!
