Back in the glory days of my youth…you know, March 13th…when we were still all allowed to go see live music, I made the trip, along with my friend Steve, to catch the album release show for In The Wake Of The Great Collapse by Grand Rapids own Laurentian Tides. It’s a fitting album title, don’t you think? While there, we sat down with the band for an on-camera interview. And what a great one it was! Sometimes it’s like pulling teeth and we end up with something that I really don’t want to share, though I do anyway. The guys in Laurentian Tides were talkative, intelligent, and interesting. And then they burned the stage down with their incendiary set. Check it all out below.
