The Shadow – Oct. 12th

There have been several myths and conspiracy theories surrounding the original band and this song happens to have fueled one of the largest rumors of all, one in which people thought a certain Sir was buried. It turns out the lyric in question was just “cranberry sauce.”

The Shadow artist is relentless at times, but also likes to chill out and burn one down every once in a while.


The Shadow is made possible in part by New Belgium Brewing.
