On June 24th, 2014, Canada’s own Street Pharmacy released their latest Pharmanomics EP, the first of a 2 part installment release with the second installment being released on October 16, 2014. Before that second installment drops, Street Pharmacy is celebrating the release of their music video for the song “Red Light Midnight”. The song actually starts at the 1:15 mark after an intro that looks to take inspiration from the movie Rounders.
