Many associate Friday the 13th with bad luck and doom. April is bringing the first Friday the 13th of the year, and it might be time to start them out right.

Instead of avoiding ladders and black cats, change your luck by heading down to Fifth and Federal Station (801 Fifth Street) for some live music.

For the first time, The Dundies will be playing  at Fifth and Federal Station, bringing all of the energy and the covers that they are known for. The band plays cover music from “blues and oldies, to classic rock and today’s hits,” according to their Facebook page.

The band is comprised of four members from all over the United States.

Fifth and Federal Station has been getting into the swing of the downtown vibe by adding more and more live music to their calendar each weekend. They offer an open mic night on Thursdays and typically have a band or artist play on Friday and Saturday nights.

When asked about the decision to bring The Dundies to the bar, General Manager Chad Duncan said, “I’ve been wanting to get The Dundies to play here for a while. They are great live and play an awesome show. They have a great following, and should bring out a great crowd.”

Weather permitting, the band will play on the outside stage beginning at 8 p.m. and ending around 11 p.m. Otherwise, they will play inside.

There is no cost to get in, though you must be 21 or older with a valid ID to drink. The establishment is dog-friendly as well, so feel free to bring your furry friends along.

Duncan added, “I’ve seen [The Dundies] play a few times and they put on a great show. Definitely one of the best local bands in the area. It’s going to be a fun night.”
