On the occasion of the release of their debut album – All Lit Up – hot-as-a-pistol St. John’s electro-pop band Repartee makes its way back to The Carleton for a show Tuesday, May 3rd. Show time is 8 PM and it’ll be $10 cash at the door to get in on the fun. Support on the night will be provided by Rachel Sunter’s Arsoniste!
