With the East Coast Music Week vastly approaching next month, in St. John's, Newfoundland, I thought I'd give these guys a plug, as they'll be playing at the festival between April 9th to the 11th. And that's reason enough to go check out In-Flight Safety, especially if you're in the area during the festival, as… Read More
