Our album release show at Company Brewing with Grasping at Straws on November 6th was incredible. Thank you to everyone who came out and making the night truly special. In promotion for that show, we had the privilege of sitting down with Bonnie North on Lake Effect on WUWM. If you missed it, you can listen to that interview and in-studio performance at WUWM.com. We also had a great conversation with Sid on Local Lunchbox on WMSE. You can listen to that interview (starts at around 30 minutes in) at WMSE.org.
We’re busy lining up some new shows for this winter so keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for some announcements.
