PODCAST: The Struggle Is Real (S1E17)

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 ethereal, garage-pop group “dreambeaches,” and play some songs from their current 2017 EP, “Disappearing Act.” Ryan catches us up on recent and upcoming shows, and we dispatch senior media producer Nate to Mr. Goodbar on 6/18 to talk to alternative emo band “Winski.”
