Michigan duo performs 'Where Will We Go' aboard the MTS

By Ryan Bradford

By Ryan Bradford
In this episode of A Trolley Show, we take a detour in Solana Beach where, unfortunately, the trolley doesn’t go. But that doesn’t stop the boys from The Stone Foxes from performing a lively version of their song “Cotto” before their show at The Belly Up.
