Warren Dunes performs brand new song "Talkin' About That Burden"

Warren Dunes performs

The self-described "post-modern beach...with threads of indie pop, art-rock, psych, and Tropicalia" Warren Dunes is the latest project from Julia Massey, Dominic Cortese, and Jared Cortese. 🌴 They stopped by the Georgetown Stables to perform the shiny new "Talkin' About That Burden," as well as "Come Find Me" from the their apologetically fun debut album "Welcome to Warren Dunes." The band donates a percentage of proceeds from every live performance to a variety of charitable organizations.
