P.B&J Album Release
PB & J is headlining this show. Although the name P.B&J comes from the first letter of each group member’s first names, the joining of fruit preserves with a spreadable paste made from peanuts is still part of the show. “We dress up in sandwich costumes and throw out peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as part of our act,” said guitarist Peter Anderson, who is backed in the band by the PB&J rhythm section of drummer Becca Fredericks and bassist Jake Ericson. The new release is the band’s fifth album.
Fuzz Lung is opening. “Keith Dust Rips” was scrawled in a women’s room stall at Carmody Irish Pub where the band performed to an enthusiastic crowd. Soon after, Dust and bandmates Josh Palmer, Zach Dornfeld and Anthony Brown, dubbed themselves Fuzz Lung. Their sound is driven by Dust’s lo-fi, experimental aesthetic, as heard on several solo releases, including two singles out in the past year, precursors to a new album. In addition to several house and bar sets in the Twin Ports in the past year, the band performed its first out-of-town show in St. Paul in January.
Safe for Now is a former five-piece pop-punk band looking to get loud this year. Moving from his old position on the drums, Joel Kunze is joined by new member Cory Kemi and original member Riley Vessel on the wall of six-stringed mayhem. Another new addition, Casey Sawyer takes up the position on the drums, with Mike Guello on bass. Rounding out the now six-piece band is Jessie Stowe on lead vocals.
