* MCats Gig #13 – Block Party


The rain cleared. The lighting was great. A large crowd was expected. The sound check was perfect. Naturally, we expected the worst. But the block party on Acton’s Madison Lane hosted by the Durand and Meusel families was a blast. The MCats played two sets. A more laid-back daylight set, and a rockin’ night set that got everybody dancing. Thanks to all involved!
