Performing guests will include Megan Jean and the KFB – all the way from Charleston SC and Harper’s own Rabies Scythe Fight which should get this party started promptly at 7pm (SHARP).  There is even word (all-be-it most likely a dirty rumor) that Georgia Native stand-up guy / comedian REXX HOWARD will be hosting a private set from the woodshed located directly behind the school house which will include complimentary face-painting.
