Murnau, Giallows Return To The Stage At Rozz Tox

October 9th, 2019

On Saturday, October 11, Rozz-Tox will be the site of one band’s re-emergence and another’s reinvention, as Giallows and Murnau share the bill. Returning to the stage after a long, multi-year sleep are the guitar-and-drums two-piece Murnau. Their resurrection began in earnest in mid-August with a show at a tiny pizza joint in their equally tiny hometown of Morrison, IL, about an hour’s drive up I-88 from the Quad Cities; now they are kicking off string of local dates in Rock Island as they prepare to record a new release. Doors open at 8, show starts at 9, cover is $5-10. They... Read More
