CONCERT REVIEW: Electric Callboy – Bury Tomorrow – If Not For Me at MGM Music Hall

MGM Music Hall, another venue that I have (shockingly) yet to shoot in, until tonight, and boy howdy, is it a show for books!

I have been to that venue many times, and of those, few were sold out. Still, the night was thick with hardcore energy and the venue floor filled up quickly.Continue reading
