    Rookie Town Promo

    Although I enjoy all derivations of punk rock, I have a certain soft spot in my heart for the sub-genre of post-hardcore. From Fugazi to .Moneen. to Thursday post-hardcore has supplied me with some of my favorite albums of all time. Unfortunately, I continue to notice that the genre has been falling to the wayside in…
