Photo Gallery: Before They Blew Up!

Right now, we’re all yearning for 2020 to be over; for Covid-19 to return from whence it came; for the world to get back to some semblance of ‘normal’, whatever that is going to look like. One thing of normalcy anyone reading this will share with us, is, most assuredly, being able to visit a dark, dingy venue somewhere in our town, and go see some live music. While we can’t enjoy live music right now, we figured we’d take another rummage, like a bum looking for change down the back of a sofa, for some old gems, showcasing a plethora of bands and artists before they really made it big. Join us as we take a stroll down memory lane…
