Pretoria Lafayette Ave. (Video Premiere)
Pretoria is a four piece alternative/indie rock band out of Grand Rapids, Michigan. The band added a new member, Evelyn Timmis, after their first EP and they’ve since been honing their sound. We’re happy to be premiering the video for Lafayette Ave. today.
Lafayette Ave. is a song about the interactions lead singer Rob Gullett had at Grand Rapids Community College and on Lafayette Ave specifically. The music video was appropriately filmed downtown Grand Rapids, and includes a montage of the band strolling around the city.
