PODCAST: The Struggle Is Real (S1E11)

Musicians Ryan Gurnett, Dennis Reed Jr and Will Webb talk about the good, the bad and the funny of the Western New York music scene. Ryan’s savage review of Australian pop’s Chase Atlantic’s recent Town Ballroom performance draws Twitter shade, and causes “Chaser” Dennis to quit the podcast!! Record store owner Rick Rhodes talks about why he loves vinyl, and his involvement spotlighting local music on Buffalo Night Out TV. Ryan recaps the Sugar City Band Lottery, and we do four quick “Band on the Street” interviews on pre-show rituals, and play music from each band.
