Tell us about your best gig in Sac.

Sacramento Bike Kitchen. Those shows are always the most fun. Great atmosphere, a party with a PA basically.

Tell us about your worst gig.

02.04.19

First show, our friend Ella's backyard. Playing outside is always a crap shoot. It just felt like nobody was in to it, made worse of course because it was our first show and a sympathetic environment, so we expected it to be good.

What artist or band are you a little embarrassed to love, and why?

02.04.19

I'm not personally embarrassed to love the Grateful Dead, but it's the band that most people think I should be embarrassed to love!

What was the first song you learned to play?

02.04.19

"You Trip Me Up" by The Jesus & Mary Chain.

What's next for the band?

02.04.19

We are excited to announce a practice scheduled for the first weekend in February.

What's the story behind the band name?

02.04.19

We've known each other since we were kids, and this was a fake band name we made up back then, only to get used now for real.

What's your favorite local artist/group?
