8M2B fans, listen up! The local band is playing The Hut, located at 305 N. Fourth Ave., on Saturday, March 14 (Pi Day!!) to promote the release of their new album, "Gravitate." 

It's not just about the music, though, for this event, as the night will feature both food and craft vendors to offer up a "festival atmosphere." Bands will be playing on the outdoor stage, with festivities running from 8:30 p.m. until 1 a.m.

The jam band said in a release that you can expect their newest album to feature elements of southern rock, New Orleans funk and roots reggae. 

However, the album has a more animalistic force behind it. Using the lion as their "spirit animal" and an Asiatic lion as the album's cover art, the band seeks to draw attention to the rapidly dwindling population of the lions. At this time, the release said, there are only 411 Asiatic lions left in the world so the band will be using the album to "promote education and conservation efforts in the Asiatic Lion's only remaining home, the GIR forest in Western India."

You can support both 8 Minutes to Burn's new album and the lions by heading to The Hut this Saturday. Here's the night's line-up:

8:30 to 9:30 p.m.: 8 Minutes to Burn playing "Gravitate" in full
9:45 to 10:45 p.m.: Suns of Santos
11 p.m. to 1:00 am: 8 Minutes to Burn's late show with guests
