The members of our street team, the Roadrunner Road Crew, are hugely important to us and our bands. They promote shows across the country, handing out posters and sampler CDs and getting people out to see Roadrunner acts, and the artists and staff appreciate them tremendously. To show our appreciation, we're going to spotlight one Road Crew member every few weeks. The crew member we want you to meet (and look out for at shows) this week is Nick Rossi of AKron, Ohio.
