Bang your head! And more with talented musician and one-women show Tiffany Christopher at a free gig on Saturday at Crazy Mountain Brewery.

More music is on tap on Saturday night with the fun and very talented Tiffany Christopher at the Crazy Mountain Brewery on Saturday, September 3. A one-woman band, Christopher’s accompanies her unique vocal style with instruments ranging from kick drum, high hat, guitar, ukulele, piano, loops and effects. She raps. She dances. She stands on top of the kick drum while taking a lead guitar solo. She head bags while playing the drums. Her sound is one entirely unto itself and it’s worth getting there in time for the 6:00pm kick-off.
