!Yes Indeed! Fest Tiger Beat Rundown: Empty Shells

And on we go… The big day is fast approaching — Saturday, September 29th is the date of the bound-to-be-cool !Yes Indeed! Music Fest, so we’re back again with third installment of this little SCR Tiger Beat writeup thing we’re doing.

This time around, we’re chatting a bit with Jonathan Espeche, frontman of local boys Empty Shells. The guitarist and vocalist of the drifting, hazy, quasi-dreampop trio threw us some fairly bleak, glass-half-empty answers; read on to see ’em.

Sadly, though, I can’t find any pictures for the band. Sorry, y’all…
