Archimedes Frisbee, through their original and dynamic sound, introduces a new form of musical ass-kicking to the modern masses who are deprived of quality music. With an unparalleled sound and an entirely original score of songs, Archimedes Frisbee may not be your common school teacher's or mayor's cup of Scotch. They produce a brick wall of drink-dropping, vomit-inducing power that, once experienced, will not soon be forgotten. Their on-stage antics are also something to remember. From throwing bricks at makeup-covered fifty-eight year old hags who should have stayed home, to setting tricycles on fire while the little kids who they were stolen from cry in horror, Archimedes Frisbee is an experience for the whole family to enjoy. So do your civic duty, and support your local taxi cab drivers by demanding a ride to the next Archimedes Frisbee performance. Until then, I, the Archimedes Frisbee Public Affairs Officer, hope you choke on your own vomit.
