    I didn’t even know Miranda Sound was still together. It’s been a while though since I really kept up with local music.

    With the exception of a one-off show in 2010, Miranda Sound officially broke up in 2008. However, we couldn’t pass this show up and are getting back together specifically for it. Can’t wait!
