Grand Rapids Rocks- The Love Hate

I love Grand Rapids and all it has to offer with local music, so I decided why not feature local bands here on! Today’s featured The Love Hate, they answered a few questions for me below! Check them out, and if you’re in a local band who wants to be featured fill out this form. I don’t just feature anyone, so don’t suck and you’ll get the Jackie stamp of approval 😉 Find me on facebook too, to follow all your favorite local bands, and GRD news by clicking HERE

We’ve been in plenty, but we’re looking ahead.

Where is your favorite place to play in Grand Rapids?
We’d have to say it’s a toss up between Mulligan’s and the front lounge at the Section (aka, The Stache).
Where can we catch you performing next?
Friday, November 9 at Mulligan’s. Wsg F.O.C.K.S. 10pm. See you there.
