At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: -Our first show was in thebasement of our college dorm at GW, Thurston Hall. Everyone was trying to study and pissed that we were playing even though we had thespace reserved. You can imagine how loud electric guitars are in a study space
-We have worked with another DC band on our latest single, Color Palette. We met them because they were hired by my fraternity to play a show in our basement and we opened. Very friendly band and super talented!
-Pete has interned for members of congress and when not making music now interns doing political fundraising.
