Sticky Fingers, Great Northern, Friday

Sticky Fingers began the year with a bang, and they haven’t slowed down since. They bolted out on the road for a 32-date tour late Feb and stayed until April, and are back out again for a couple of June dates, doing what they do best: singing about feeling low and getting high.

Between April and the start of June the Stickys have been hard at work getting the songs together for their next release. The release will be called Caress Your Soul and it’ll be coming out in October.

Catch the psychotic surf-dub love songs at the Hotel Great Northern on Friday.
