  • Saturday: Music Galore at Iron Horse Pub

    A Formal Affair with special guests Broadcasting On All Frequencies

    A formal Affair is a Wichita Falls favorite at Iron Horse Pub and tickets sell fast but that's only because they are awesome. Arguably one of the most popular local bands in the area, AFA's first single 'Two Towns became one of the most requested songs back in 2009 in NIN's local hour and the group is poised to have many more hits on their yet to be released second album. The groups soulful vocals, guitar harmonies and banging drums will surprise you as they belt out their originals and a variety of covers. They do everything from R. Kelly to Rage against the Machine and are worth braving the crowd for.
