The Legendary M-Shop Releases Its Spring Lineup

Here is a performance from one of the Ames Winter Classic bands Mumford’s shot at the M Shop. Check out The M Shop or on Facebook

I went to Iowa State for a year. I spent most of that time either hiding in my dorm room or in Des Moines playing hockey. This includes the times I was supposed to be in class. I wish I was a little more stable so that I would’ve appreciated my surroundings a bit more and actually done things like go to the M Shop and make friends. I did not, however. But I try to as much as I can now, and so should you because the M Shop is awesome. Here are a list of shows for the upcoming semester. These are open to the public, for the most part, so you should totally go. And don’t worry about being the creepy old guy at the college show, because I will hopefully be at some of these, and I will out creep you any day of the week, jack.
