Where did September go? (and Slayer Jazz demo)

Hey everyone! We had an absolute blast playing in Maryland throughout this month! Highlights included:

-Sharing the stage with Dark Water Transit on their return show at the Crown, check them out here! They are part of the reason John moved to Baltimore, and his former band devL played with them a bunch of times in the early 00s.

-Playing two sets for a super fun crowd at Cafe Nola in Frederick MD in front of these groovy monster paintings:

-Meeting and hearing new Baltimore post-rock band Noema, and playing another show with our friends Paint and Yell at Metro Gallery.

-Meeting Defenders at the BARCS benefit at Mum’s in Fed Hills, those guys sounded great and we have another show set up with them already for Mum’s on Oct 29!

-Playing at the Goddess Jam in Frederick MD! An absolutely lovely event supporting women in music and arts.

As a bonus, here is the demo we did of Slayer Jazz earlier this year, hope you enjoy!
