What is it we do here at InObscuria? Every show Kevin opens the crypt to exhume and dissect from his personal collection; an artist, album, or grouping of tunes from the broad spectrum of rock, punk, and metal. This week we stray a bit from our standard rigor because… well, because it’s the end of 2022 and we just feel like spreading some Christmas cheer! We hope everyone’s families are safe, and that you are able to kick back and rock with us! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
