Rock out at The Station

Canadian Rock and 2014 Juno Award Winner Matt Mays is a playing a show this Friday September 8 at the Station Music Hall in promotion of his new album “Once upon a Hell of Time.” Mays says of his album: “The full album has a pretty strong theme or feeling and I wanted that to come across right away. This is party rock for the heartbroken. And you can’t leave a party short of tunes, or better yet, you can’t leave the sad and lonely folks with just one song to cry to. So, why just release one song when you can leak four?!” Tickets are $25 and available online at www.mattmays.com.
