Don't you wanna know about the lid? What was underneath the lid? I don't know. I can't tell you. But I can tell you that there are 14 British invasion songs alongside a cast dedicated to finding out just that. That and the fucking wifi password.

Leading up to the Fringe 2015:
Every Tuesday night in July, Finnerty is in Residency at Boot and Saddle. Each night will feature a different band curated by Finnerty, as well as Finnerty’s own original music, including songs from The Lid. Performances include Pat Finnerty and his Full Band, Kock 107, Le Bon Le Bon, Langor and many more. www.bootandsaddle.com
A video for the rock song “Attractive Woman” will be released online. “Attractive Woman” is written by Finnerty and the video is directed by Thom Lessner. “Attractive Woman” is not part of The Lid soundtrack, but represents Finnerty’s particular brand of humorous, offbeat songwriting.
Fergie’s Beach Bar will have pop up performances of music from The Lid throughout the summer. www.fergie’s.com. Fergie’s Pub supports BRAT Productions as their official non profit sponsor.
