On Friday evening, patrons at Lawrence’s favorite record store were treated to the unique stylings of local doo-wop group Dean Monkey and the Dropouts and garage rockers Bloodbirds.

Bloodbirds were enjoyably loud, and it’s becoming apparent that Dean Monkey and the Dropouts have been working on their dance moves.
