Amidst a rich music culture filled with calypso, steelpan and soca, Trinidad and Tobago’s rock scene has gone largely undocumented. Join us to hear some history, uncensored discussions, unsolicited advice and more, as we chat with musicians and creators working locally and globally. The Only General name originated from the idea of general or open event seating and mirrors the notion of open discussions with anyone, about whatever. Whether you want to hear your favourite musicians chatting over bourbon, or get inspired by some fresh minds, join us for a moment!
