Benefiting Jake Foerster Music and Arts Fund
VINO & VINYL 1.0
“No matter how much things change or technology changes, it’ not so different from what rock bands have always been trying to do. Music is still exploring the same spectrum of what it is to be human. People are always going to be trying to find new ways to talk about love. What else are we really here for anyway, except to interact and try to understand each other better. Music is still doing that.”
