5 Years Of Songs

You have no idea how excited I am to be hosting the 5th anniversary show at Beat Kitchen we’ve put together April 25th. I’m featuring three bands that are very well known to me, and hopefully you, but not household names by any means.

The vocals are often gut-wrenching and the words they sing … Continue reading Sons Of An Illustrious Father-No Mercy/Loveletting
