Noisebeef gets out of control so fast. Too many angels out in them noisestreets. Damn. Let's close out these last few weeks of Townie Summer with some love.
I'm leaving out of the Bandcamp links because it's super time consuming and I want to get this out on time. The stats say you guys don't click them anyway, so maybe you won't miss them!
Upcoming show tips, reviews or pics from last week's shows, questions, comments, and concerns go to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Maybe this was forwarded to you and you want to subscribe? THIS IS THE LINK FOR THAT!
We love you! Get to the gig!
