Florida’s SOWFLO Delivers With “New Shoes”

If you’re looking for a kick-ass album for the summer, look no farther than SOWFLO’s LP, “New Shoes,” set to release on March 15th!

The theatre originally seated 1,651 people and at the time, was the largest theatre in the world built for the purpose of showing movies. And then enters Jonathan Davis. Most of you […]
