WTF?! A Night Off Already?

Hey y’all.

After learning about a nearby case of COVID-19 (not at CJTR, thankfully), we are taking extra precautionary measures and staying home to monitor.

Likely, everything is cool. We’re just playing it extra safe.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Operation Covid-19

While Chris and Cory do not confirm FEAR of the pandemic gripping the world, they both acknowledge that when you do a show late at night and then have to get up early the next morning to adult, it can lead to various conditions related to getting run down which snowballs into full blown panic mode…
