MC Spippy’s new scratching post, still untouched.
Winter doldrums? No!
We’re getting back into the routine here, even as winter sinks its claws into Cape Cod – back to the grind of a new semester. But the past few weeks have been anything but routine, as all these bands announce new records for the spring. Just say it: spring. As dark and cold as it’s been, the prospect of the coming thaw – and the adventures it presents – makes pushing through a little easier. As does a soundtrack.
