Welcome to "The Dig" our weekly rundown of our favorite things happening in music right now and a look ahead at what we are excited for this week.
"Go, Kid, Go"
Local singer-songwriter Mitchell Ferguson just released a new single "Go, Kid, Go" along with a lyric video shot by our friends at Cinderblock. The video features a one-shot animated take of him riding a bike down Elm St. and running into his bandmates along the way. This is the second single released off of his upcoming EP Basement Statements (Due December 2nd).
Check out the video below.
