Last December, on my year-end list of the best local songs, I picked their single “I Am Not Me,” which is like “The Sweater Song” played by ‘The Bends’ Radiohead.
They have designed a series of broom-faced characters that appear throughout their album art, on stickers all over town, and on perhaps the best band tee in Cleveland. They are very memorable and instantly-recognizable icons, like Milo is for the Descendents.
Their live shows are wild displays of energy and disillusion.
Catch them this Saturday at Grog Shop:
Heavenly Creatures / Forager / Strobobean / Sweepyheads
Be sure to stare at the wicked poster for this show for at least 7 minutes. Big ups to Amy Shoff on this design.
