Alright head count time, I just want to make sure everybody survived the one-two gut punch that was Valentine’s weekend and an Ulver-approved polar vortex. We all good? Hearts, minds, and frostbitten fingertips still intact? OK, alright, awesome. Now let’s get down to business.
It’s going to be a cold weekend, but it’s also going to be a long one so try to get out there and enjoy yourselves. Like above-freezing-temperatures, I’ll practice brevity. 5) Kleenex Girl Wonder, Wild White, Black River Manifesto at Silent Barn Billed as a “post-love fest” for Sunday, you can get your jangle on at […]
Valentine’s Day can be a sad reminder of your lonely, single life, or you can enjoy the upcoming holiday as the perfect excuse to drink copious amounts of wine, eat an entire box of chocolates and embrace your sexual freedom. One place to celebrate just that is at Pine Box Rock Shop this Friday […]
