Our friends over at Do312 are celebrating their second birthday with a show at Double Door on June 21. On hand helping them enter the terrible twos will be The Heavy, Nicky Da B and DJ Zebo. U.K. soul rock group The Heavy are rolling through town in anticipation of their new album, The Glorious Dead, out August 21, though most probably already know them from their single "How You Like Me Now?" off their 2009 album, The House That Dirt Built.

Even though it's their birthday, Do312 will be providing the drinks (courtesy of Pabst Blue Ribbon, Reyka Vodka and vitaminwater) and handing out the gifts in the form of tickets to Lollapalooza, Spring Awakening, Wavefront, North Coast and Riot Fest. Just make sure you get there early to enter the drawing.

The event is free, all you gotta do is RSVP on Do312's website.
