Intrepid, chaotic, compromising, rhythmic, and wholesome

What has been your most memorable show so far?
We had a show with Cat Company, Happy Hour, and Sunstrife on April 14th, this year. So many people sang and dance that night, it really made us set a higher standard with how we should deliver our sound to the audience.

Which local band is your favorite one to play a show with?
Please Be Kind, because she really hits us with how she sings/says the things she feels. Her music really does it for you, if you're looking for something to make you feel.
