Begin By Gathering Supplies

Listening to Begin By Gathering Supplies is like swimming through an ocean of reverb. Melodies ebb and flow at a moment’s notice, and it’s all anchored by solid programming and dynamic rhythms. The strong vocal delivery successfully soars through the din, carving out massive hooks and tuneful passages. #ianbrownsaywhat — RSMurphy

Laura A Lionello’s Panic Kit Book Release Show

On Saturday, September 17th, 2011, friends gathered for the celebration of the release of Panic Kit, Laura A. Lionello’s breakout collection of poetry, showcases the author’s deft hand and mastery of voice in dealing with universal themes and truths, such as joy, heartache, loss, suffering, and triumph.

To help celebrate the achievement, Begin By Gathering Supplies, The Columbines, and Mayor For Life performed, and all welcomed Laura on stage to read selections from Panic Kit.

You can buy Panic Kit on Amazon and find Panic Kit on Facebook. Some of you may notice the familiar looking artwork on the cover, it was made by our very own Renee Robbins.
