The Den is a cabaret bar at the end of the world that's always been plagued by the inevitability of being shut down and resident act, Dani and Leo, are giving their final performance at this little dive they've come to call home. To celebrate and mourn this Dani and Leo have put together a special set for you, an armoury of gutsy, sad and blisteringly funny blues songs and stories. Catch them before they're gone and The Den is no more.
