Tommy Gantt, better known as Tommy G from the 509, has been focusing on music in the year since his last appearance on the Local Lounge
. He remains an advocate for the oppressed and a whistle-blower against those in power, in league with Harpman Hatter
. However, he has managed to root himself deeper into the Spokane music scene lately, particularly with the invitational jam he hosts every Thursday at Ugly Bettie's Public House and his band-in-progress called The Legends after Eleven. When Tommy returned to the 103.1 KCDA Local Lounge this past Sunday, he focused on tender ballads and love songs, performing a half-dozen tunes live in the studio and spinning a couple tracks from his 2009 self-produced CD "Upstarts & Old Farts."Click Here
