DBT Week in Review - 6/18/2010


Webisode 7 from The Big To-Do - Santa Fe:

Ironically, the story and its details could just as easily be used to describe Kneiser himself. The front man of Murfreesboro, Tennessee band, and Glossary, is taking this, the release of the band’s sixth record Feral Fire as an opportunity to share a little bit more than usual about his upbringing and his love for his rock and roll family."
