2014 Year Enders



MYSTERY TRAIN (Amherst) main man JOSHUA BURKETT is totally willing to sell you some great records. Via his shop, and his label (MYSTRA), and his performances – both solo and group (TARP, FROZEN CORN, VERMONSTER, under his own name, etc.) – Burkett serves as a serious pillar of the free minded music and art making experience known as western Massachusetts. Pay him a visit over in Amherst amd learn something why don’t ya? – Dan Shea
