Baseball Gregg plays Milk Bar May 24

Baseball Gregg is always keeping us on our toes. Just when we’re divining into some sweet n jazzy cabana beats, they switch gears and take us to a poppier place with funky baseline magic. Check out their newest single, “The Movies,” and in case you’re ready for summer, please enjoy their weird and solid music video for “Welcome the Night.” Love us some Wes Andersonian touches like that. They’re playing Milk Bar with Video Age and Max Gardener this Friday May 24. Thanks, Throwin’ Bo’s, for another tasty lineup. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

New Track: "Dharma Blues" - Bug Martin

“Dharma Blues” is featured on Gutterball, the forthcoming release from Bug Martin. A dusty, cinematic haunt soaks in as you step into outlaw spaces. A sense of methodical purpose looms as the earnest twang of vocals & guitar unite. A dire drama unfolds within desolate surroundings.
