JOHN BIBBS - ODE TO OLD FLAMES ALBUM RELEASE
July 30 at 9:30pm
$12 Advance / $15 Door
Ode to Old Flames harkens back to a time when vinyl forced artists to make the most of the limited amount of time they had to make a good musical impression. John Bibbs uses less time than many of his contemporaries, but he also manages to say a whole lot more. Highly Recommended!
