We're a really good live band but have always been about creating the best diverse and original music we can.

Don't ask us who we sound like though -- we really have no idea.

Thanks to the late, great Kurt Vonnegut for inspiring our band name.


We recorded our album at Black Lodge Recording in 2012.

Here are all of the LYRICS to the songs on our debut album, What Are You Prepared to Do?.

A special thanks to Lana Grove and Amber Fraley for the band logo and CD design work.

Cara (Weeks) Neuburger created the spectacular diorama and did the related photography for our album.

Nate Paradis played lead guitar on this album with Chris Nuez on drums.


We used to be The Beat Pirates and have 2 EPs under that name:  Solid Blue [2005] and Chuwon! [2006].


You can contact us on Facebook or at this phone number:

Thanks to everybody that has come to see us or spent sleepless nights thinking of us.
