1994’s “Everyone Must Touch The Stove.” In their 90s heyday, the Washington, DC based three-piece
(Matt Dingee on guitar, Stephen Gardner on bass and Davis White on drums) with a distinctive blend
of post-rock dynamics, sneakily melodic song-writing and ear-blasting guitar noise. Finding kinship

Enterprising Sidewalks is out August 14th, and the band are playing a series of shows leading up to
the release, including their first-ever west coast gigs.
