Headliner Ron Gallo:

I SAT IN VANS A LOT THIS PAST YEAR BECAUSE AT ONE POINT IN TIME I WAS FRUSTRATED WITH HUMANITY (BUT REALLY MYSELF) AND FROM THAT CAME AN ALBUM CALLED “HEAVY META”. APPARENTLY THE SENTIMENT RESONATED MORE WITH PEOPLE IN 2016 THEN WHEN I WROTE THOSE SONGS IN MY APARTMENT IN PHILADELPHIA IN 3-4 YEARS BEFORE THAT (PROBABLY BECAUSE THE CURRENT POLITICAL AND SOCIAL CLIMATE) SO SUDDENLY THAT DARKNESS TURNED INTO DOING A LOT OF STUFF I ALWAYS WANTED TO DO BUT NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD OR COULD – LIKE TRAVEL AROUND WITH MY FRIENDS, JOE BISIRRI (BASS) AND DYLAN SEVEY (DRUMS) AND PLAY SHOWS FOR PEOPLE WITH BANDS WE LOVE IN PLACES ALL OVER THE WORLD: NAKED GIANTS, WHITE REAPER, THE BLACK ANGELS, TWIN PEAKS, THEE OH SEES, HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF TO NAME A FEW.

“WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW!” THEY SAY.
