PODCAST: The Struggle Is Real (S1E16)

Musicians Ryan Gurnett and Dennis Reed Jr talk about the good, the bad and the funny of the Western New York music scene. We interview Angel Rivera of Buffalo punk rock band Super-Tugger, and formerly of Neko and The Viva Noir, and play songs from their brand new “Wasted, Hopeless, Wasted” EP. We hear a snippet of Ryan’s singing debut in “Broski” at the Sugar City Band Lottery showcase. Our Warped Tour stream is announced, and we play four “Band on the Street” interviews from 5/24/18 at Mohawk Place from The Eaves, First Ward, Rust Belt Brigade, and Virginia’s Mike Frazier.
