By on Jul 28, 2018 in Episodes |

Last week I had the opportunity to meet up with Indianapolis band The Day After as they were touring through St.Louis to play at Floor Fest. Being that this was their first trip to St.Louis, we decided to go to Imo’s and record a podcast there. I had a great time getting to know more about the band while enjoying some pizza. We talk about touring, some of the 10 year history of the group, and different merch ideas like candles and condoms.
