This past Sunday night, I had the chance to sit down with icons of Dayton hardcore from the early days, Workhorse! They’re headlining what is sure  to be a mind-blowing showcase of heavy hitters at Oddbody’s in Dayton this Saturday!   


I’ve met a couple of the guys in passing, but since I often still feel like a newb when it comes to the Dayton scene, having the chance to get a sneak peak before the reunion show and sit down with the guys to rehash the early days was pretty much impossible to pass up!

A LIMITED run of T-shirts & CD’s will be available at the show!
