Last night was an exciting one for fans of rock band Digital Summer. The group best known for its successful grass roots marketing (hand-delivering tickets to fans, putting their logo-covered stickers all over town, etc.) made their triumphant return to Tempe, opening for Sevendust and Drowning Pool at Marquee Theatre.
Meanwhile, What Laura Says is busy in the studio recording, and Ear Candy Charity is promoting a huge opportunity for Flogging Molly fans. Check out more local news in this round-up of what's going on in the scene
