Introducing the Quarantrain Blog

Blogging the wild and wondrous travels of the CQ After Hours Quarantrain Raids.

After our 2nd crazy week traveling to all corners of the Twitch musical world, here we are. Challenged to create a journal of our travels by Dave Dresden himself while livestreaming in at Club Quarantine.

Since our crazy trip began it has been our self-made challenge to bring our passengers back to Club Quarantine. Making our own little CQ After Hours group a fun way to keep the happy energy flowing at all times.
