Family of the Year
80's band Frankie Goes to Hollywood once sang about 'Two Tribes' and when the SoCal-based Family of the Year/Mowgli's tour rolled into the packed Triple Rock Social Club Saturday night…
The W♥M family like Family of the Year, having covered their appearance in New Orleans and in Minneapolis, where John noted that the band offers "feel good vibes and melodies".
The Californian band is back on the road to do quite a few Summer festivals, appearing at Minneapolis Basilica Block Party next Friday and again at the beautiful Varsity Theater in September.
