Beretta Music Showcase
July 8th, 2012
Better than: Clubs built after 1974.
The righteous guitar tone of ZZ Top's “Got Me Under Pressure” was just barely audible as our taxi made its way towards Interstate 80. Our driver had the windows down, one arm hanging out the side, sparks occasionally shooting off the tip of a lit cigarette. Collectively, we had just entered the strange four-hour deadzone between last call and 6 a.m. Exiting on Seventh, signs of life came from a row of on-duty bail offices and a 24-hour donut shop. Our destination for the evening: The EndUp.
