Midweek Music: Sophia Ragomo

 

By Sophia Ragomo

 

Summer to me has always meant good music. For this playlist, I rounded up a few fantastic bands I saw live this summer. From chart toppers like Catfish and the Bottlemen, to local bands like Blame Candy, I wanted to include some of my favorites in the alternative rock scene at the moment. Although summer is almost over, these bands make music that make me want to rock out all year round.
