The geek rock band consists of the vocal talents of Erin Hatch and piano stylings of Matt Sernaker (and sometimes features appearances by that Kroze guy. They keep him locked away as much as possible.). They rock out and make people laugh with songs inspired by comic books, video games, movies and TV.They have played across cons such as Youmacon and MAGfest and in 2009, they won ABC's "Official LOST Theme Competition" at Comic-Con, and have created the annual Comic-Concert: A Night of Geek Rock music series. 2013 being the band's 10th anniversary, they have released two new albums "Octopuses Stand In Our Way" and the live album "More Juice" and have embarked upon a countrywide tour of much randomness to celebrate!
