Ty Segall at the Hi-Dive

How Ty  Segall Indirectly Advised Me to Invest in Earplugs: Tuesday night at the Hi-Dive I was separated by a dear friend of mine in the midst of a drunken, sweaty crowd of violent dancers set to the brutal soundtrack of Memphis hardcore-garage act Ex-Cult (I haven’t experienced a mosh pit since middle school, I forgot what I was missing out on.)
