REVIEW: THE BALLROOM THIEVES at THE BASEMENT

The Music City was fortunate enough to witness yet another powerful  performance from blog favorite alt-folk outfit The Ballroom Thieves recently; they set up camp at The Basement for a pre-celebration of their release of their new album, Deadeye–the cozy atmosphere of the iconic venue ensured an intimate and friendly experience.
