The owner of legendary FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL calls The Roomsounds “the future of rock ‘n’ roll.” With a fresh sound and smart songs that draw on the likes of Tom Petty, Ryan Adams, The Rolling Stones, and Big Star, it seems this Dallas band may be just that. Their sophomore album, now complete, was recorded at FAME Studios after the legendary studio’s owner came across the band’s first album.
It's time again for the celebration of Spring, Life, Unity, Community, and Downtown Culture! Join us
Unity in Diversity...Playing colors with each and every one brings a feeling of spirit without any distinction of cast, creed, color, race, status or sex. It is one occasion when sprinkling colored powder ('gulal') or colored water on each other breaks all barriers of discrimination so that everyone looks the same and universal brotherhood is reaffirmed, just like the gumbo that is Downtown culture. This is one simple reason to participate in this colorful festival and the other is to Help The CASA Kids. Open your hearts and have simple funnnnnnnnn....
