Time for this week's featured shows. I am sorry they are so late, I have been stickin' it out by myself for a while, and need to start allocating my time more resourcefully. I also apologize for the lack of reviews, previews, and interviews, we will be adding some new members to our team very soon. Thanks for understanding!
Tuesday Aug 6
This is a night of Rock with Blackwater '64, from St. Louis, and Gypsy Bravado & Diabolic Machines based locally. Watch as the musical backdrop morphs from Indy, to Alternative, even pulling in some Classic and Psychedelic influences as Club Dada tries to keep a cap on what I'm sure will turn out to be a huge blowout!
