Looking for guitarist/drummer friends!

Hi. I'm a musician and a full time student at Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove Illinois studying entrepreneurship/business/marketing and I'd really like to create a specific vision (like something musically really upbeat and catchy with dark and introspective lyrics), horror/gore lyrics,or something really aggressive with deep/meaningful lyrics or a mix) with someone else that we can both be excited about, and that we can share with each other and others by creating music, releasing music, and playing some live shows.

Tentatively, I'd like to start working towards these things right now (in the present) and work towards having an active summer as a band if at all possible (so, getting together, playing locally--2 shows a month in Chicago and the surrounding areas and suburbs, for example!), and while I am quite interested in this musical pursuit, I'd most likely want to start with something part-time and then keep taking further steps towards making this into something much more, or not, depending on the project or goal.

I also would even be interested in being part of a mostly studio only band (or just playing on your album) and making/releasing some cool and unique albums, EPs or songs.

It would seem to make logistical sense not having to travel too far for either of us if getting together in person (I do of course drive but you get the idea) so about an hour max.

I am also willing collaborate electronically! I should additionally note that I am indeed straight-edge but it isn't an issue if you have a few beers (just nothing out of control). Also, if we're gonna do covers, then let's do some rockabilly, lol :P

If you, or a friend want to talk further, get in touch matthew 91p yah-oo . com

Let's kick some ass & have fun!
