Looking forward to playing the @hobhouston with @thesuffers and company Friday! Link in our bio. #thewaxaholics ・・・ #Repost @thesuffers ・・・ We are just a few days away from our benefit show at @hobhouston. Trust us, this will be a show like no other. There will be collaborations, a silent auction, and so much more! The city of Houston has been through a lot this year, and we want to make sure that we aren’t forgetting about those that still need help even though the news cycle has changed. We hope to see you at the show! All proceeds will be donated to @greaterhoustoncf.
