Shhhh…if you listen closely, you can hear the whistle of death in the air. Or wait, is that Matt Fanale working on his tribute band for Ministry? Either way, it means our favorite holiday, Halloween, is almost upon us.
That’s right kids, dane101’s Freakin’ Halloweekend V is fast approaching and, once again, local Madison musicians are scrambling to learn their favorite artists’ songs for the two night event!
