Leggy, T-Rextasy, Westeners @ Replay Lounge

Tomorrow night, Replay Lounge will host three bands that collide pop, indie, punk, and garage to make music that absolutely rips. Leggy and T-Rextasy will be joined Lawrence’s own Westerners for what guarantees to be the best way to start the week. While all the bands use similar threads to create their music, the way […]

The 10″ packs a punch–veering […]
