A CLOSER LOOK – Femmes Of Rock

Here at the Thrasher-Horne, we try our best to give you an inside look at all aspects of our performances. We want you to see all angles of your favorite shows and artists… more than just the view from your seat. If we can get access to it, so should you! It’s with this mentality that we bring you a new regular feature on the blog – A CLOSER LOOK. This will be our opportunity to take you into the spotlights, through the stage door, and into every nook and cranny backstage to show you how your night of entertainment comes to be – from load-in to load-out.
