Frankie Cosmos @ The Space, 11/9/15

Surfer Blood may have just played The Space in Hamden, CT a year and a half ago, but following the May 2015 release of their third full length 1000 Palms, the Floridian outfit thought it would be a good time to return, sporting a slightly new lineup. Part of the lineup change was due to the […]
