The Beautiful Mistake (Chain Reaction. March 23, 2018)

The Beautiful Mistake

As a music fan, it’s easy to get blinded by the entertainment and forget that regular people are the ones behind instruments.

Animal Style Records Ten Year Anniversary Show (Chain Reaction. December 17, 2017)

ASR - 007

Ten years is a long time. And when you think about music and its ever-changing landscape, ten years can seem even longer. For an independent record label like Animal Style Records, 10 years means a lot of bands, albums, and friendships. This was all put on display for excited fans packed into the famed Chain Reaction. The night saw stellar performances by Northbound, Sundressed, We are the Union, Mixtapes (reuniting for this special occasion), and Daggermouth.

Enjoy some photos after the jump!
