QRO’s spotlight swings back around to gone old favorites, the Big Apple’s alt-rocking Sam Champion.
Sam Champion’s December 5th, 2009 date at Union Hall in Brooklyn, their first show in over a year, was their last ever. In fact, Noah Chermin had stated that they “broke up over a year ago”, and that he’s “done with the music business”. He semi-returned to music with Noah Champion Band, who debuted at Rock Shop in Brooklyn on May 26th, 2011.
