Ben Sures on Jan 21

The first time we hosted Ben Sures, he ended up shooting a pilot and inspiring the television show "Neighbor's Dog" by Plan 9 Films. The audience was very cheery that night, and Ben had the whole room dancing and singing. He's a great songwriter and showman and we can't wait for his return!
