Newest Happenings!

Man. So many amazing things on the horizon. For The Fallen Dreams has an awesome show coming up with The Color Morale at the WC Social Club on Saturday, January 13th. We've also got some touring news in the very near future. Night Spice has been on fire as of late. We just released a new album called "Welcome To Miami, IL 2: After Dark" back in September and we're already going to be releasing some new music very soon, some of which we will be playing at our headling show at Thalia Hall in Chicago on January 20th. Stoked to see where 2024 takes both of these projects. As far as what I'm doing personally, I've got a bunch of DJ sets coming up. Check my now updated schedule to see where I'm going to be and when I'm going to be there. As always, thank you for the support. I love you all.
