downhere - Wide Eyed and Mystified CD Download Free

Derk Gates - 6/2/2008

What can I tell you about downhere? I saw U2 back in 1987 at the Hoosier Dome with the other 45,000 concertgoers and even though U2 was playing for 45,000 they had a way of connecting with the audience to make you feel like they were performing for just you. Well, Downhere has that same gift. It's difficult to explain and that's why I highly recommend seeing them live! If concerts aren't your thing, it least go get a couple, or all, of their CDs. If buying CDs isn't your thing either or you are strapped for cash check out the press release below.:
