The Poster Room upstairs houses just a sample of the shows that were held there. This past week, it was history in the making as the fast rising “legends-in-the-making band, The Struts delivered their stellar set to a sold out venue!

Our Featured Spotlight Band is a powerful rock trio out of Gothenburg. They are LÅNGFINGER. They have just released a music video for their track Fox Confessor which is off their recently released album, Crossyears.’The ten-track offering was recorded by Johan Reivén and Olle Björck at Sweden’s Welfare Sounds Studio with additional recordings by LÅNGFINGER at Beduin HQ, mixed by Olle Björck, and mastered by Daniel Johansson.’ They comment about the video/song, “‘Fox Confessor’ is the first collaboration between LÅNGFINGER and cinematographer Anders Bryngel.
