How To Dress Well | The Roxy | 3/18/14

  The first time I saw Tom Krell p/k/a “How To Dress Well” perform live, I thought to myself, “I really need to see him perform in an intimate club venue.” On March 18th, at The Roxy Theatre, I got my chance.

Solange | FYF Festival | August 25, 2013

How To Dress Well | FYF Festival | August 25, 2013

To check out pictures of other bands I was able to catch at the festival, CLICK HERE. Though he released a highly acclaimed album back in 2010, I didn’t become familiar with Tom Krell’s (p/k/a How To Dress Well) music until earlier this year.
