Ryan Traster + Hannah Von der Hoff AKA Holy Hannah! $10

Saturday, July 31 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

The new album by Joshua Tree-based singer-songwriter Ryan Traster features that warm, worn-in vibe of an album that’s been in your cool parents record collection since you were a kid. Eventually, it gets passed down to you to take along into “the real world” and is there when you need to be reminded of being a kid again. It’s that gem of a find in a milk crate of vinyl at the local tag sale on a Sunday afternoon. The kind of album that becomes an all-time favorite, only discovered there by the person who knows what they’re looking for and has the time to dig for it.
