Baseball, sunshine, macho mustaches, tall cans, and rock music – what a beautiful combination.
The Reason have released a fantastic new baseball themed video which stars some familiar Hamilton faces and bars, and John Axford of the Milwaukee Brewers.
In honour of this video and everything that was great about ’70s baseball, The Reason are throwing one hell of a party at The Casbah this Friday. Playing along side The Reason are: Saint Alvia, Organ Thieves, and The Great Lake Survival.
If you are planning to attend this show it is encouraged that you dress like a “1970s Baseball badass”. If you aren’t planning to attend the show you should still watch this video because it is fantastic.
