What We Done Did
With a new album, Nine Types Of Light, dropping just in time for Record Store Day, TV On The Radio is on tour and making a stop at The Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville on Saturday, April 9th.

We told him we could print directly on the glass. We did and they came out awesome. If that wasn’t enough, Graham who makes sick, backlit windows with dimensional attributes convinced them to have one made for the event. Check it. Continue reading
