COMMUNE BABE: ADAM LEVY
Shoutout to this week’s Commune Babe Adam Levy! He performed at the Mid West Music Fest, both as a solo artist and with his band: The Honeydogs. Is that not the best band name you’ve ever heard? We think it gives City page’s 2017 winner (Lazy Scorsese) a run for it’s money. Hopefully you caught this Minnesota staple live. Look for him to keep doing big things!
