Edan Returns To Thekla

Way back in October 2006 when the Thekla re-opened after our huge refurbishment, the first act to grace the stage was Edan. The clip above was shot on that night - huge thanks to whoever uploaded it - and we're pleased to announce that Edan is returning to the boat on Sunday 29th April along with Mr. Lif and more!
