It’s True spills release show details

* Mark April 2 on your calendar because it's going to be the show of the spring.

Hotter Than a Pistol

Listen once to Smith Westerns' Dye It Blonde to pick out all the reference points, then listen some more for the gleeful abandon evident as this young Chicago band makes The Beatles, T.
