Our first message from Bearcubbin’! was a wonderful surprise. Here was a band that was making interesting, great stuff and that was totally ready to play Banana Stand. Yet, despite even loving their brand of math rock, I’m kind of ashamed to say we had never heard of Bearcubbin’! before they contacted us. We had no idea what we were missing!
I’m really thankful that Bearcubbin’! did contact us, because I absolutely love the band. I feel very lucky that we could host them at Banana Stand last year. Chris, Mike, and Patrick are phenomenal live performers, and I count their live record amongst Banana Stand’s best. Be sure to download it on September 11th!
