AIC bassist Mike Inez recently told us about his experience finally getting to perform with his bandmates again up in Seattle.
"We've been hearing other bands and what songs they're picking to play, so we're really excited to hear it," he enthused. "We're gonna be just as surprised as everybody else. We're purposely not listening to the stuff because we want to be surprised."
The event will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 6pm PT / 9pm ET on the MoPOP Facebook page, Amazon Music Twitch channel and Amazon Music app. Donations are welcome. For more details, visit the MoPOP website.
