You know, we at La La Lista have day jobs, bands, school, other projects — and quite often we find ourselves needing to limit the number of bands we cover.
BUT NOT THIS WEEK. This week we’re going all in because, well, there were a lot of amazing bands we felt deserved our coverage, and sleep isn’t that important, right? *clenches shaking fist around coffee mug* Right?
Get. Thee. To. These. Shows.
