Lee Van Cleef – The Gentleman’s Punch

May 16th, 2008

Dear Consumers,
Lee Van Cleef is releasing a record. It was put together by the band for

beer was drank and tetris was played instead of working on the album. 2007
was fun.
This record will be released to the world on Saturday, May 31st. A record
release show will happen. It’ll be a a celebration of sorts starring the
aforementioned Lee Van Cleef troupe and local dynamos The Teeth. One more
band may play also. Mystery.

Frontier(s)

April 29th, 2008

I’m gonna grab your attention real quick….
There’s a new band gearing up with members from several notable bands. Yeah, these days, what band doesn’t have a noticeable ex-members list, right? Well, most of those bands sucked. These guys’ bands didn’t.
So here’s to hoping that the premiere of Frontier(s), starring Chris Higdon (Vocals/Guitar), Eagle Barber (Drums), Matt Weider (Guitar), Brian Todd (Bass), is a smashing success.
You can catch them at The Pour Haus in Schnitzelburg on May 1st with The Fervor and Jake Winstrom, or on May 21st again at the Pour Haus with The Shipping News and Young Widows.


Frontier(s): Higdon, Weider, Barber, Todd.
