Trial by Fire in Hell's Bottom! 

In case you missed it, we had an EPIC weekend with the good folks at VFW 350 "Hell's Bottom" Takoma Park while sharing a stage with some amazing bands. Starting off the show we had Forrest Fire showcasing all kinds of Gump-punk. Followed by new-comers; the Bro-Mantics. Cranking the punk to 11 (and them some) we had Brainbuster! Our set came next before stepping aside for our good friends from NYC during their tour; Hopeless Otis. The night continued with Interstate Rivals bringing their trademark triad sound and lastly we jammed to Baltimore's own MSH! Three days later, we joined Chilled Monkey Brains at the Mason Inn on Wisconsin Ave and those damn dirty apes rocked the whole Bar.  

It was during this time we introduced two new Towers to our line up; Mr. Dave Costello (top) will be taking the Vocal reins from James Tucker. And Chris Nystedt (bottom) from Chicago will be filling in on Guitar after the departure of Jack Philipoom. Both Jack and James are moving on to take care of post-college life and children respectively and will be missed but we could not be more stoked for our new blood. They definitely rocked the stages this past weekend and still want to play! Stay tuned for some Fall shows coming soon, we may be coming to a City near you.
