Sounds much like... 10 different genres thrown haphazardly into a basement for 5-6 hours at a time.
BEFORE READING...this is short excerpt to impression of the scene several days before arrival..Usually arrival from work and nearby towns and distant towns. "We know it's a Thursday, but there's going to be a rad show in my garage. We're making a ridiculously out-of-the-way stop to play with a bunch of our friends and invited musicians... , so come see us while we're in town and come check out what should be a ridiculously good show!" --This seems to happen once a month.
"We had a real dandy fiddle...Surely the last time I played it I set her down underneath that bench. And now it's no where to be seen!"
Teo (Rhinelander, Wisconsin) We've finally got TJ to play his own music at shows. Really good folk music, some audience participation? How could you not want to come hear it? Unfortunately there's no way for you to hear it online - you'll have to come to a show.
Daimon (Rhinelander, Wisconsin) Justin's solo project - mellow anti-folk. Guitar, banjo and hopefully some cello and whatnot. If you haven't listened to it yet you can here it at http://www.myspace.com/innocencetoexperience
Double-A (Rhinelander, Wisconsin) Aaron's solo project - nice fast, fun folk-punk - he put out an EP that you should've already heard, if not you can hear a few of his songs at http://www.myspace.com/fuckidneys
Drifters In A Helicopter (Rhinelander, Wisconsin) A 4-piece grunge/rock band consisting of Heidi Cray, Dave Bonson, Justin Fralick and Jake Weigandt. New songs and maybe new instrument? We'll see. 4 really old recordings are up if you want a bad idea of how it sounds. http://www.myspace.com/driftersinahelicopter
