That 1 Guy at The Mint ($12 Presale/$15 Day of Show, DOORS 8PM SHOW 10PM)

That 1 Guy is known for his epic one of a kind instrument known as The Magic Pipe. The Magic Pipe is a very versatile instrument, it can be slapped like a standup bass, plucked like a harp or played with a bow. It also holds many surprises, The Magic Pipe can be used to trigger sound effects or visual effects. That 1 Guy’s unique one man performance is not to be missed.
