On Friday, June 21, Rock City Cafe's Velvet Lounge will welcome back Pitch Black Ribbons. The music will run from 7 to 9 p.m. at Rock City Cafe, 316 Main St.

Brothers Clint and Cody Phipps have been playing and writing music together since they could talk walk and juggle flaming bowling pins. Pitch Black Ribbons is the acoustic duo that evolved as their river of a thousand-or-so original songs kept getting deeper and wider.

As usual, there is no cover charge; however, tipping the performers is highly encouraged. For more information on this and other events happening at the coffeebar/cafe, call 594-4123.
