Here are some quick thoughts on the release schedule.
For the localvore: Columbus Blood
This local compilation gathers songs from the likes of The Girls! (“It’s Not You”), Bridesmaid (the brilliantly titled “Hungry Like Nick Wolf”) and Connections (“You’ll Find It”). There are also a pair of local release shows scheduled, including an Ace of Cups gig on Saturday, April 19, featuring The Girls!, Hexers, Dirty Biscuits, Bridesmaid and Dead Girlfriends.
