News to me but good news at that. Rick Froberg of Pitchfork/ Drive Like Jehu/ Hot Snakes fame has been playing in a band called the Obits for a few years now but they have finally started to play out. Even better news, there are new shows on the horizon.

The band line up:

Rick Froberg–guitar, vocals Sohrab Habibion–guitar, vocals (Edsel) Greg Simpson–bass

Upcoming Shows:

March 21: Washington DC at Comet Ping Pong with Orphan & The Points

March 22: Baltimore at The Talking Head Club with Orphan, Ratsize & Love or Perish


  1. The Obits have been playing in Brooklyn lately, but I haven't been dressed ironically cool enough to make it past the Williamsburg Border Patrol Fashion Police. John Reis has a new band too, Night Marchers, they are playing Mercury Lounge in NYC on 5/7.

  2. Helllooooo - I posted about the Night Marchers already - that was so like last week, ha!

  3. Oh snap. It's a cold, cold world.
