GunFight has been a band for 10 years now and just being a band at all is hard enough, so being a band for 10 years is a laudable accomplishment — of course, then it’s even harder to be as good as GunFight! consistently and continually is. They’ve got a new album coming out that’s been in the works for quite a while and they’re celebrating that release, as well as their 10 year existence, with a show at The Footlight in Ridgewood, Queens, on Saturday, April 22nd. Also on the bill are Raccoon Fighter, Sun Hat, and Shark? We’ll hear music from all of those bands (or at least some members of those bands), plus a few others with some clear connections to GunFight!
