They grow up so fast.
Roosevelt Row's Jobot Coffee is turning two years old this week, and to celebrate, John Sagasta and his crew are throwing a musical birthday spectacular they call Showbot at Jobot, happening Tuesday, October 16.
The free event will feature two main stages with a lineup of local performers, all of whom either work at Jobot or are in somewhat associated with the shop.
Musical acts include: Aaron Johnson, Agent J034, Dogbreth, Empire of the Bear, JJCnV, Lauren Farrah, Liam & the Ladies, Playboy Manbaby, Stoneypie, and TK & the Irresistibles.
Listeners can also purchase a copy of Showbot 2012 for $5 at the shop with bonus tracks not preformed at the event. Showbot kicks off at 6pm and goes until who knows when, because this is Jobot after all.
