Weekend Riff: Dryvel, Styx, Alice in Chains, Metallica and More
“Mac's is where it all started for Dryvel. We are so proud and happy of where we are as a band and wouldn't be there if we didn't start playing all those shows at Mac's back in the AWESOME college days!” said Matthew Marriott. “Since we don't live around Lansing anymore, Mac's is pretty much our home away from home. Mac's Bar is run by an amazing group of people so every show we play there is something to look forward. Plus, this line up with The Rival and Hawk & Son is an awesome line up that we are excited to be on thanks to Science Booking and The Great Lakes Collective...oh yeah and the PRB speicals haha!”
