BURP Gigsters Stuff

So who are these gigsters?

We're just a few of the more confident and committed members from the monthly thrash. If you think that might be you, drop me a line. Like the thrashes, we try to be inclusive and not elitist. But we also like to put on a decent show, too. You'd have to be prepared to do a bit of rehearsing. Yes, we do rehearse. No, really.
