ARMORED SAINT will be playing at The Avalon in Santa Clara, CA on Saturday, October 16th! The guys had planned on only playing one show this year but wanted to bring the Saint up to the bay area before the year was through.
Joey Vera adds; “We know we said that our Los Angeles show in May was going to be our only show this year, but some things changed with John Bush’s availability so we decided to play a show for our Bay Area brothers and sisters. Come on out!”
