Wolf Ram Heart performs tomorrow night at South Park Tavern in Dayton.
After branching off from another band, Gretta, Derek and Angie formed the Dirty Socialites to explore their varied musical influences. They do just that on their debut album Amor or Armor, which was a completely homegrown project from the recording and mastering to the artwork.
The band visited the WYSO studios to perform live and talk about their process for creating an album - from writing to recording - all in the same room. The Dirty Socialites will perform at South Park Tavern on April 16th.
