Yet that’s exactly […]

Ty Segall Band – Slaughterhouse

Richard & Chip of the Larryville Chronicles

If we’re talking Urban Dictionary, “Larryville” happens to be “the slang term used as a name for Lawrence, KS.” The Larryville Chronicles, however, is a Lawrence-focused blog taking on local art and music with a unique angle and casual voice well suited for the self-proclaimed “aging scenester” set. Or at least that’s what the site’s […]
