Season 2 - Ep. 14 - Bonding Over Weezer and Mustaches with Indie Rock Band The Dreaded Laramie
I am going to be speaking with the Nashville-based indie rock band, The Dreaded Laramie. After putting out an E.P titled The Dreaded LaramiE.P. in 2019, they are set to release their next EP called Everything A Girl Could Ask on May 13th which is a Friday. But damn those superstitions, because I am sure that nothing but magic will come to the band upon release day.
We’ll be speaking to The Dreaded Laramie right after this.
