You Me at Six Rocked WGRD with Some Exclusive Acoustic Songs

On Friday, the guys in You Me at Six came by the WGRD studios to play some songs acoustically for a few winners, and the GRD staff.  It was a great way to warm everyone up for the show on Friday night at the Stache with Young Guns, and Stars in Stereo.

Meeting the guys from England was pretty cool, and they hung out with listeners, ate some lunch, and then talked to Janna about the tour and the band.

‘Free Beer & Hot Wings’ Live Show at Rightway Auto Was a Lot of Fun

Thanks to everyone who came out on Friday morning for the "Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show" live show at Rightway Auto in Wyoming!

The guys had a great time, and you guys were a big part of why it was so fun!

Producer Joe managed to screw up "Name That Blank," but everyone still had fun with it. And "Paired With An Idiot" got all the way down to Rochambeau between Joe and Free Beer.
