Fort Frances-A Billion Drums

Somehow it’s been over two years since I last wrote about Fort Frances. They’ve put out a few singles since then, and they’re only a few days away from their new record, Look What Tomorrow Brought Us, hitting the digital platforms.

There aren’t a whole lot of … Continue reading Molehill-Say You Were Wrong

Tigers Jaw was there to support the newly reunited boys from Jersey, and also to play some of their new songs from their latest album I Won’t Care How You Remember Me, which came out last year. … Continue reading Tigers Jaw at Riviera Theatre 9/26/22
