Do512 did a good thing and hired a friend of the program. Formerly at Emo’s, Ross is good people and he was nice enough to invite me and the cameras over to one of the live sessions they have at the offices. This sessions artists were Riverboat Gamblers and then one of my personal favorites Black Joe Lewis. To see both in a tiny room, bonus.
