Show Review: The Blow @ The Mill

Following the strangeness and punk fury that was Friday night, Saturday offered a far different experience for the listening public. This wasn’t my first go ’round with The Blow. I’d seen her when I lived in Ohio…twice. The first time, it was an apartment party. She was getting into the crowd, dancing and having fun […]
