Local Spins | Bald Since Birth GR Release Show Recap

Last Saturday was a great night. We released Bald Since Birth and celebrated with a show at Founders with The Accidentals, SuperDre, Suport, Edye Evans Hyde, Andy Holmes, Dominic Ryan, AJ Paschka, and more.

Above is a video round-up courtesy of Local Spins. We also have some multi-camera edits of a few songs in progress that you’ll see soon. Thanks for all of the love....
