Transfer isn't exactly known as being a mellow band, but tonight, the band known for its raucous rock show is slowing things down with a free acoustic performance at the W Hotel.
The show should demonstrate just how talented these guys are all around and will be the first time you can leave your earplugs at home. The show ends early enough that you can follow up with a trip to Fluxx for Daydream Nation's second Fluxx Live event, this time featuring Microphone Mike, Hyena and the Shark Attack DJs.
