Solagget reunites and DVA introduces itself at the Fisch Haus.

Saturday, Sept. 13, was a cool night, and the sun set in radiant yellows, golds and turquoises outside the Fisch Haus on south Commerce Street. Francis Moss opened the show; Solagget would perform a reunion show next; and, then, a Czech sibling duo named DVA would fill the room with sound.
