Played two shows this weekend with Wild Child in Minneapolis and St Paul. Easily one of my favorite Midwest bands right now. Their demo is one of my favorite things to listen to lately and I just happened to start recording at the Medusa right when they played my two favorite songs. I played these shows with my band Solid Attitude but my other band Nerv will be doing a split 7” with them this summer on a Swedish label SMRT.
Wild Child Demo as highly recommended as I could recommend
This was the best show of tour the other week, packed basement with lots of dancing

I designed a logo for the Minneapolis band The Liz. I know Cole and I am pretty good buddies with Eddie but it’s one of the first times I’ve really done any design for a band that I’m not in or really close with, so I’m very excited.
They’ll be on a tour with Supersonic Piss for the next few weeks, both really great, ugly, heavy punk/noise rock bands.
