4 Aspirin Morning
4 Aspirin Morning
Born at the bottom of a 40 oz and raised on an 80s and 90s record collection, The 4 Aspirin Morning (4AM) kicks open the cellar door and resurrects the underground punk/ska scene. The 4AM combines hard rock sensibilities with the grittiness of 80s punk and the catchy hooks of early 90s ska. The result: a wave of guitars that collides with a storm of horns to create a fresher, darker, more aggressive sound.

This strange brew fuels a wildly energetic show that will have you grooving to basslines one minute and skankin' in the pit the next, all the while pumping your fist to the chants of every chorus.

The 4AM formed in early 2009, the result of a group of 8 musicians brought together by a classified ad. Their sound was painstakingly refined little by little in a small second story flat above a modest bike shop.
Not Dead Yet
Not Dead Yet
First conceptualized in 2013, Chris Weber and Joe Reedy started working out a few songs Weber had been writing since the disbanding of his old band Egan's Rats. Both had been on a several year hiatus from playing music and were itching to get back into the scene.

Soon after Chris Kasper decided that he could lower his musical standards enough to be in a punk band (although he makes sure to tell everyone he quits at least 5 times a day as to keep up appearances).

Now the three of them needed a front-man and lyricist. The plan was coming together in their alcohol soaked brains. That's when they decided to take a shot in the dark and contact Chandon about the project...

Never expecting him to agree to become a part of the shit show that would later become Not Dead Yet, Kasper was elected to be the point man on convincing him to join. To the shock of everyone he agreed. Already in 2 other great local bands, EME and 4 Aspirin Morning, the three were ecstatic to have a 4th drinking buddy to play music with.

The rest is (recent) history.
