Personally this was my first time hearing Tenth Avenue North and I have already invested in their back catalogue as a result. If you can hear the band live you won’t be disappointed if not check out their latest release ‘The Struggle’.

There are a few more Tenth Avenue North photos from the Thursday Mandela Hall gig in the flickr set here.
