There’s high tale of gypsy business this Thursday night, featuring one of the classic city’s most recent incarnations in Rock and RAW, The Free Associates. This vicious group of scoundrels first appeared on our radar earlier this year when they booked a session at GF studio and proceeded to lay down an assortment of scorching singles.

Not to say that all bands/music in town isn’t genuine, there is something to admire and learn with these guys playing who they are and doing it very stripped down without reliance on their gear. Just how Rock and Roll began…READ FULL ARTICLE
