Band to Join.

ABOUT

I need to find some people to play with, preferably soonish. I’ve been in bands since my whole life and it really sucks not being in one. I moved to Chicago for grad school a few years ago and haven’t met anyone on the same page yet.

Influences

I’m into all kinds of stuff. Like many dudes my age, my first love was Nirvana, followed by NOFX and melodic punk bands of the era, which led to me being in lots of alt/punk bands growing up. I got really into Sonic Youth and Radiohead and Modest Mouse in the late 90s and played with more ‘classic’ indie rock bands in high school. I lived in NYC in early 00s so I dug the garage and electro scene that was there around then, as long as it was heavy.
I’ve also done all kinds of post hardcore, weird, noisey and/or electronic projects (kinda like a lot of the stuff on Sacred Bones) so I’m open to messing around and riffing. I’ve been DJing 15 years, both in clubs and on college radio, so I’m good with remixes and production stuff as well.
As of late, I’m still into everything I liked growing up: from Fugazi and Double Dagger to The Unicorns, The Rapture and Mount Eerie. My favorite bands more recently include Cloud Nothings, Iceage, Titus Andronicus, Psychic Ills, and Car Seat Headrest.
