What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC? : Arlington VA is where we practice. 2 of us live in Arlington, one in Alexandria and one in DC
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band that are related to persons/places/things/events that happened in the Washington DC area. Give us fun stuff, not normal bio stuff! : We have a lesbian drummer... who can say they have that?!
We once brought t-shirts to a show and the singer was throwing them out to members in the audience but ended up just knocking over beer bottles on the bar. We blame it on bad catches.
Bassface (Brett) is a bit of a character and sometimes yells out in the middle of shows "Keith is my father!!" When our friend from Bells and Hunters is at one of our shows. We have no idea why he does it, but we are now considering playing a little star wars next time Keith is at one of our shows.
We have a stuffed animal mascot called Skip the Camel which we mention during a cover of Captain Beefheart - Party of Special Things to Do sometimes at shows and tell a little story about him to lead up to the song. We kinda make it up every time so you never know what you are going to get. It might crack us up more than the audience.
Anything else we should know, or you want to share? : We all came into this band knowing we were not doing it for the money but the love of music. Made it clear right from the beginning that any money we make from shows will just go into a band fun that can get us into the recording studio and buy band merch. We now have a full album that was paid for by shows!
