Late Night Music with Frank- Miniature Tigers

I have always found that as I get older there are certain friendships based on two things; music and booze. Now it is not to say we do not have many other things in common, but no matter what the heck I do when I go back to Baltimore and see my buddies, we talk music while boozing. It is probably the best times. I grew up in an area surrounded by eclectic tastes and the beltway bullshizz, music in high school was my escape. And so my friend Mikey texted me late last week and all he said was "Bro, Miniature Tigers, go listen they are silly." Silly indeed. Thank you Mikey from Baltimore, MD.

A little snippet about Miniature Tigers:
