Sometime around mid-2013 is when I first heard Nude Intruder. They were sludgey, kinda demented sounding psycho-grunge / garage rock. And their name was awesome.
A few months later we were playing a show with them and mutual pals The Muzzlers at The Beat Kitchen. It was a Sunday night before Christmas. We didn’t pack the house but the feeling of comradery filled the room.
This show was the end of our first year of shows. Starting out as a band with zero connections means you play a lot of shows with bands you know little about. You’re kinda just smashed together with whoever. This was one of a handful of shows that year where we knew going in to it that we were playing with stand-up dudes.
