Mr.Meaner is a swing punk band based out of fargo north dakota while having roots all throughout the Midwest.
RUN RABBIT RUN
From the shores of the toxic Ohio river in Cincinnati comes Run Rabbit Run, a band formed of an amalgamation of societal anxiety, existential despair, and the hidden joy and beauty that comes with reveling in the absurdity of everything that is confusing and miserable about being alive.
Rooted in an amalgamation of punk, bluegrass, and folk, “Pour Choices” is the musical equivalent of a rant against capitalism by a drunken philosophy undergrad with a desk job. One part drinking anthems, one part millennial woes, two parts no idea what the fuck we are doing.
RILEY COYOTE AND THE RTZ
Riley and the RTZ are a folk punk band from southern Minnesota comprised of Riley of The Rail Yard Ghosts, Charley of the Key Kids and John the Florida-man who was captured naked after fleeing the chicken coop. Each an accomplished multi-instrumentalist and songwriter in their own right, and all veterans of the Minnesota music scene, having performed in numerous bands all over the state, and country-wide as well. Formed in Northfield, Minnesota on a wish, in a dream. Bluesy, gut-stomping all-cattle-no-cowboy fuckrock for meteorologists who like storm chasing shitfaced tornadoes full of railway sleepers and hobo teeth. Coming to a flaming dumpster near you.
Violinist of 22 years, classically trained with experience in scottish/celtic, metal, punk, bluegrass and folk music.
I improvise and play by ear, so sitting in with new bands is one of my favorite things! If you ever want to add violin for a show or recording hit me up 🙂
