The Shred List 2012 – 2013

Written by new snow & music contributor Krystelle: So summer has been and gone, it’s too cold for flip flops, they have been slung back in the wardrobe *sob*.  But before I can wipe the tear from my cheek, a smile appears…the nights are getting darker, the buzz has started on Twitter, Freeze Festival is...
