Over 300 people showed up to the Royal American last Friday night to celebrate the High Divers, whose tour to California last month was cancelled after the crew got into a terrible accident with a semi-truck in Arizona. They may have been bruised but are no longer undeterred — reeling from the euphoria that comes […]
Last month, ET Anderson alluded to new, exciting ventures around the bend, and this week we found out what he was referring to — the project's founder Tyler Morris and Brett Nash of Secret Guest have joined forces to present APT, which Nash described on social media as an "all encompassing entity," or, as Morris […]
