Adrian Aardvark has just dropped a new music video for a track from the American Aardvark album.

R.I.P. Bob “Beano” Barker

This past week, Bob “Beano” Barker passed away.  Beano was a regular in the region’s music scene, and was the guitarist for X-Tractions, Wards, Roman Shades, Cuts, Nation of Hate, Headlock, and Gas And Oil.  His absence in our scene will definitely be felt.  7Days reports that there will be a memorial show in his honor at The Monkey House on Thursday, January 23rd.
