When and how did you become a band?

2 years ago, Blair and Zach worked together and Blair was looking for a band that would sing Grateful Dead songs with him and wouldn’t mind his obsession with selfies, and then we met Ruth and she was looking for a group that would let her listen to Type O Negative and Al Green and not make her feel weird then they met Josh and he was looking for a group that he could show pictures of his dog to and then we met Dina and she wanted a group that practiced in a house full of cats and shared her love of Echo and The Bunnymen.ย  Stars aligned.

How did you decide on your band name?

My mother made a comment about how I always carry a knife. “She said something like, “well, you are Mexican.” I thought it was funny.

You’re playing BFF Fest! ย Thank you! ย Any goals for the day?

Send out some emails. Look at some art. Stare at the clouds. Shred the gnar.

What do you want everyone to know about your band?

That everyone in the band is sick of Zach talking about Fugazi.
