Sunday, January 5, 2014 from 8:00 PM to 10:30 PM (EST)
Ex Friends was formed backstage at Riot Fest East in Philadelphia on September 24, 2011, where Flexner drummed for Pennsylvania pop-punk band Weston and Tannenbaum played bass for Plow United's first performance in 13 years. The two were soon joined by bassist Audrey Crash (Myles of Destruction) and guitarist Jayme Guokas. The band entered the studio after only a handful of rehearsals, recording their first EP, No Wonder We Prefer The Dark with Creep Records' founder Arik Victor. Paper + Plastick released the record on September 24, 2012, one year to the day after the Plow United reunion at Riot Fest.In January 2013 they released the Twisted Around EP on German punk label Yo-Yo Records. It contained a cover of Plow United's "West Chester Nuclear Winter," from the band's third album Narcolepsy. The video for single "Dirty Ben Franklin," taken from forthcoming album Rules for Making Up Words debuted on Vice Magazine's video site Noisey in September 2013.The track became available for download the same day. Ex Friends has played frequently in the Mid-Atlantic region, including dates with The Dead Milkmen and Smoking Popes.
Headfirst for Halos
Hello all you fans of wonderful music. We're a new band out of North Carolina, and we're really excited to share our take on the punk rock scene with all you wonderful people. With elements from The Blue Suits, The Arcadian Project, and these two other motherfuckers we picked up under a highway (love you Sean and Alex), we're ready to kick some ass.
Somewhere between indie, punk and alt rock.
Doors @ 7:00 PM
