Sneak Peak: INL6 - Fake Shark Real Zombie

We had a great time filming this episode the night before new year's eve at the Cobalt.  After constructing the new Isabelle Dunlop Clothing store in January and then catching up on all the work backlogged we're only now getting to edit the Industry Night Live together.  It's going to be our best yet, just check out this clip from the show.  The band was energetic and entertaining, and the crowd was there to have a party!
