Best Non-Local Rock Band Winners! 

Thank You INDY fans! We were voted Best Non-Local Rock Band in the Punk Rock Night Awards this past Saturday night!  We rocked the Melody Inn in Indianapolis and took home this title! We will be back to rock you again soon. Thanks again!

Two Local Shows Next Weekend!  

While we finish up recording over the next week we will venture out to Hamtramck for two shows the weekend of September 26 & 27th. Friday night, Sept. 26 we will be playing an acoustic set at the Benefit Concert for The Luckouts. Our friends in rock n' roll hit some bad luck recently due to the August storms and their practice space and home were destroyed! We will lend a hand by performing this second benefit at Paycheck's Lounge along with fellow rockers The Farleys, The Ruiners, Downfall and Detroit Rioit Crew. We will be going on around 10:15.

On Saturday, Sept. 27th we are back in Hamtramck with our amplified set opening for our friend Ricky Rat and the Rat Pack at Small's. Chicago band The Handcuffs are also on this show.

Hope to see you Shagsters out in the audience!!

Toledo, We're Already Coming Back for You! 


















This weekend we're back in Toledo already to play the Main Event Art and Music Festival this Saturday at 3pm on Frankie's stage. We are so honored that that guy's at Frankie's asked us to play this!  We rocked so hard the last time we played there that they even made a special effort to put us on this bill. Thank you SO MUCH, Innovation Concerts!!
